Elk Cove Vineyards was founded in 1974 by Pat and Joe Campbell. Winemaker Adam Campbell joined forces with his parents in 1995 and Elk Cove remains proudly family owned.

  • Winemaker: Adam Campbell and Heather Perkins
  • Farming: The vineyard practices high-density planting, focusing on sustainability and quality yield.
  • Variety: Pinot Noir
  • Terroir: La Bohème Vineyard was planted in 1985 by selecting the very best vines from Elk Cove's original Estate Pommard plantings. Pat and Joe Campbell named the vineyard after the family who sold them the property – and their favorite Puccini opera. This picturesque vineyard overlooks the winery and the coast range mountains and rises to 800 feet, making it one of the highest elevation vineyard sites in the Willamette Valley. La Bohème was planted using cuttings from vines selected for small cluster size and intense flavors, hallmarks of the world’s finest Pinot Noirs.  They prune and cluster-thin La Bohème heavily to limit yields and to maximize ripening and flavor concentration.
  • Vinification: Fruit from the La Bohème vineyard is fermented in small, temperature controlled steel tanks, hand punched down twice daily then aged for ten months in French oak.
  • Aging: The wine is aged for 10 months in French oak barrels, with 10% new oak to enhance complexity and texture.
  • Tasting Note: With lively aromas of pie cherry, fir needles, clove and rose petal, this wine’s fine-grained, silky tannins complement deep flavors of blackberry and black raspberry with notes of fennel, dark chocolate, and pink peppercorn on the long finish.
