Elk Run Vineyards

The forerunner of vinifera grapes since 1979, Elk Run utilizes modern technology and oak aging to produce subtly complex character in their wines. The winery is known for individual attention, intimate tours, tastings and performances by local artists. Elk Run is the recipient of over 400 national and international wine competition awards. Be sure to browse our gift section where you'll find cork screws, cork toppers, some jewelry, books, t-shirts, hats, local bread, cheese and chocolate.
