Watch this once in a lifetime event with a glass of Elk Cove's Sparkling Brut Rosé and our commemorative Solar Eclipse glasses. We are featuring breakfast tacos by The Tamale Boy and cello music by Eric Hammerquist. Carlton is right outside the path of totality, but don't let that stop you!

Opera in the Vineyard at Elk Cove

Join us for a celebration of summer featuring operatic arias – in the vineyard! We’ve teamed up with the Portland Opera to support their 2017 production of La Bohème and have convinced them to bring their “Opera a la Cart” to Elk Cove. Inspired by Portland’s food cart culture, Opera a la Cart is Portland Opera’s new mobile performance venue. Designed and built by architecture students, the cart features a fold-out stage and a “menu” of operatic specials du jour. Charismatic young singers will perform arias, duets, and ensemble pieces.

Opera in the Vineyard will feature special pours of La Bohème Single Vineyard Wines, including our SOLD OUT 2011 Brut Rosé. 

Picnic packs including crackers, cheese and salami are available for purchase separately. Guests may also bring their own picnics.

General Admission is $50 per person. Elk Cove Club Members and Opera Season Ticket holders are at $30 per person.

Solar Eclipse Experience with Fairsing Vineyard

Although outside the path of totality, the vantage point at Fairsing Vineyard for the solar eclipse will be spectacular.

Join us Monday, August 21 for a delicious brunch prepared by chef Rebecca Clark and a flight of our estate-grown wines ($50 per) between 11:30 am and -1pm.

For a memorable morning, add a restorative 9 am Yoga session to your eclipse experience with brunch to follow ($75 per).

Contact our tasting room for reservations  503.560.8266.

Don't miss this opportunity to experience the first total solar eclipse touching the continental United States since 1979. Experts agree, Oregon will be fortunate to witness over two minutes of totality as the moon's shadow races 2,900 miles per hour along an 87 mile path across the Willamette Valley.

May 27 Anniversary Party Menu | 5.17.17

Memorial Bash at the Vineyard

Beautiful location + gorgeous Oregon Pinot Noir + South African bubbles + delicious food by Chef Jim Holland + big tent + rockin' DJ = great party on May 27th at Angela Estate!

On May 27th, 1860, John F. Abbott filed his Donation Land Claim No. 945 with the state of Oregon. An action that granted him 320 acres of stunning Yamhill-Carlton land.  This Act was put into place to encourage settlers into Oregon and the Pacific Northwest and to create settlements all along the Oregon Trail. 

157 years later, this beautiful landscape has been transformed into the current vineyard sites that produce our award-winning Angela Estate Pinot Noir. Please join us for our annual vineyard celebration which luckily falls on the actual anniversary of the property, May 27, 2017. 

We will be out all day with Angela Estate Pinot, bubbles, food, music, games and good times, rain or shine. Won't you join us? (We will have a very large tent rented just in case…)  Hope to see you there! 

Much love from the Angela Estate team!
