EXAMPLE OF WINERY BIOGRAPHY & PHOTO
We request that winery bios be written in third person with a maximum of 150 words. If word limit exceeds this amount we may take the liberty to revise the bio. It is helpful if you send these in plain text documents or directly in an email. Photos should be high-resolution. A vertical format is preferred. If you have recently participated in the IPNC and would like to use the same photo and bio on file, kindly notify our office or check the box on your winery registration form.

ELK COVE VINEYARDS (Gaston, OR)
Represented by Adam Godlee Campbell & Shirley Brooks

Elk Cove Vineyards produces wines from outstanding vineyards in the Northern Willamette Valley of Oregon. Through site selection and meticulous vine management they achieve concentration and depth of flavor in the vineyard. At their winery they employ gravity flow and gentle handling to protect the inherent qualities of their estate-grown fruit. Their focus is on Willamette Valley Pinot noir, Pinot gris, Pinot blanc, and Riesling. Elk Cove Vineyards is a second generation family winery that has produced single vineyard Pinot noirs since 1979. Five Mountain, Mt. Richmond, Windhill, La Boheme, and Roosevelt Vineyard Pinot noirs have all been selected for specific site characteristics. Yields are kept to under two tons per acre for these special reserve bottlings. Find out for yourself why they say, "True quality is timeless."
