Passionate, creative, driven to excellence in his art; Joe Dobbes is the consummate winemaker. Joe is a true Oregonian, raised in a small town in the north Willamette Valley and educated in Ashland. Yet his calling began outside Oregon, in Germany and France, where Joe spent 2 ½ years learning the art and science of winemaking. He apprenticed at Wiengut Erbhof Tesch, in the German Nahe region, and at Domaine G. Roumier and Domaine Comtes Lafon in Burgundy, France, with winemasters Christophe Roumier and Dominique Lafon. Joe returned to Oregon and applied his knowledge, experience, and passion for winemaking immediately.
Wine by Joe is one of the first high-quality screw top ventures in Oregon, producing handcrafted Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc varietals. This is your go-to wine. Delicious, approachable and meant to be shared.
Wine By Joe wines are available nationally and internationally in wine shops, retailers and fine dining restaurants.
