Elk Cove Vineyards' Sister Winery
At Pike Road, we believe the Northern Willamette Valley is the best place in the New World to grow Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. This is why they are committed to providing you with wines that are 100% grown in this incredible place.​​ 

     

The Campbell Family - Oregon Wine Pioneers

We planted our first 20 acres of vines in 1974. At the time, there were just a handful of winegrowers in Oregon. Within the community of Oregon's Winemaking Pioneers, we were the only ones with deep family history of farming in Oregon. Today we remain proud family farmers with over 350 acres of vines in the Northern Willamette Valley, primarily for our original winery, Elk Cove Vineyards.

In 2016 we launched Pike Road Wines, sprouted from our determination that it's possible to create affordable, quality made wines from Willamette Valley fruit.  Pike Road, our namesake, runs adjacent to our vineyards and deep into the Oregon Coast Range Mountains.  We take pride in crafting delicious white wines and Pinot Noirs sourced from our own vines and those of other family vineyards.  We are committed to preserving small family farms here in the Willamette Valley through these long time partnerships, some of which we’ve had for decades.

At this program we will have the nice opportunity to taste and compare these excellent pinot noir wines from different vineyards and experience how terroir can influence their character.
