Dobbes Family Estate
At Dobbes Family Estate, our winemaking objectives are to craft wines true to their varietal character with as much depth, richness, and flavor as possible without sacrificing balance and elegance. We focus on the finest of the cool climate varietals grown in the Willamette Valley region and the most exquisite warm climate varietals from the Rogue Valley Region.
Proprietor and winemaker, Joe Dobbes, is passionate, creative and driven to excellence in his art. Joe is a true Oregonian, raised in a small town in the north Willamette Valley and educated in Ashland. His calling began outside Oregon, in Germany and France, where Joe spent two and a half years learning the art and science of winemaking. Joe returned to Oregon where he has applied his knowledge, experience, and passion for winemaking for 24 vintages.
As stewards of the Earth, we are committed to producing quality wine while being mindful of the impact we have on the environment and our community. Dobbes Family Estate Winery is certified sustainable through LIVE (Low Input Viticulture and Enology). We are proud to be the first custom winemaking facility in the state of Oregon to be LIVE certified. We are currently certified Salmon Safe and are working on attaining LIVE certification in our estate vineyard, Larkins Estate Vineyard as well.
Our wines of distinction represent true expressions of the finest varietals in Oregon that are produced using sustainable, continuously improving practices. Through our winemaking, we marry Nature, Nurture and Artistry to craft wines of unparalleled sophistication. Winemaker Joe Dobbes shares his passion through Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Viognier and Syrah as well as limited release vintage specific specialty wines.
