About Us

Dobbes Family Estate - a realization of Joe Dobbes’ dream of a family wine business and over 3 decades of winemaking. Joe began his career apprenticing at Weingut Erbhof Tesch in Germany’s Nahe region and at Domaine G. Roumier and Domaine des Comtes Lafon in Burgundy with wine legends Christophe Roumier and Dominique Lafon. He further honed his skills working in Alsace with Domaine Ostertag. Stateside, Joe has produced wine for Elk Cove Vineyards, Eola Hills, Hinman/Sylvan Ridge, Paschal Winery, and Willamette Valley Vineyards, including the Griffin Creek and Tualatin Estate labels.

In 2002, Joe created Wine By Joe, LLC, a custom winemaking company. He crafts wine for several clients within his two dedicated red and white facilities. Joe owns and produces three of his own labels: Dobbes Family Estate, a luxury label dedicated to Willamette Valley Pinot noir, Rogue Valley Syrah, Viognier and Grenache Blanc; Wine By Joe, a value-price Oregon appellation label; and Jovino, Joe’s third label, dedicated to producing Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris for on-premise accounts.

Wine by Joe - established in 2002 we consistently make delicious wine from Oregon’s most established vineyards and distinctive grapes. It’s been our mission to make really good, approachable wine at a really good, affordable price. Wine By Joe takes the cake when it comes to crafting high quality wines for your everyday table.
