Rekindling Roots in the Pacific Northwest
Woven Wineworks is the winery that produces exceptional wines crafted with love from extraordinary fruit. The spark to rekindle roots in the Pacific Northwest began when Jim Allen’s eldest son, Phillip ventured out west dreaming of owning a piece of land near Portland. It was during a random visit to a beautiful farm in Banks, Oregon with his cousin and Jim’s niece Elaina, they fell in love with the place. It was love at first sight. Jim adored the farmland, Elaina loved the grapevines and Phillip adored the house. Hence, the family collaborated to purchase the 35-acres that encompasses Covey Ridge Farm.
CRAFT certified and LIVE certified winery
Elaina maintains an unwavering commitment to producing high-quality wines through sustainable farming. All her wines are designated LIVE certified sustainable and she recently became the first Craft Certified producer in the state of Oregon. In addition to running their urban tasting room and gathering space in the Pearl, Elaina has developed a series of full sensory wine tasting workshops and experiences.
Predominant Grapes of the Region
The grapes that are grown are predominantly Pinot noir and Pinot Gris along with an experimental block of Riesling and Chardonnay. The rows of grapevines are planted 9’ apart and they refer to this spacing between the vines as the “John Deere”, which allows adequate space for the movement of a tractor.
The winery is committed to produce a variety of complex and high quality wines through environmentally and socially responsible grape cultivation and innovative techniques of winemaking.
