About Clay Court
Clay Court is located in the picturesque Parrett Mountain area of the Chehalem Mountains AVA. Elk Cove purchased this great all Pinot Noir vineyard in 2009 because of its gentle southeast-facing slopes and signature dark red soil (Jory/volcanic clay). This 15 acre vineyard was planted in 2001 with Dijon 115 and 777, in addition to the historic Pommard clone of Pinot Noir. Clay Court is an ideal location for producing spicy Pinot Noir with concentrated red cherry fruit. Clay Court is also home to Elk Cove’s founders, Pat and Joe Campbell. Outside their door sits their enormous vegetable garden and the namesake tennis court, perched at the top of the vineyard.
