Community (com· mu· ni· ty): a group of people with a common characteristic or interest living together within a larger society

Beyond our commitment to crafting exceptional wines, Dobbes Family Winery is dedicated to nurturing the communities that have embraced us. Through strategic nonprofit partnerships, we extend our ethos of care and support beyond the vineyards. These collaborations align seamlessly with our mission to not only produce outstanding wines but also to uplift and enrich the lives of those around us.

These efforts serve as a testament to who we are as a collective, reflecting our winemaking philosophy and our unwavering dedication to crafting wines that are uniquely Oregon. Each bottle represents our unwavering commitment to excellence and our deep-seated belief in the power of community. Together, we raise a glass to Oregon – to its beauty, its resilience, and its boundless spirit.


Through strategic nonprofit partnerships, we extend our ethos of care and support beyond the vineyards. Our staff are asked to select a personally meaningful nonprofit committed to taking care of our community and impacting and bettering others. We work with these nonprofits year-round, donating a portion of the proceeds from a rotating list of wines each quarter. With every sip, you stand in support with Dobbes.

A Family Place

“A Family Place is dedicated to making a positive impact on families and communities by working to strengthen high-risk families to prevent child abuse. I grew up with a family that needed this kind of positive support but had no such services available– I am glad to support an organization that cares for those who are at risk in our community.” – Kari Mahe, General Manager

A Family Place partners with courageous parents and caregivers to help build on their own strengths to overcome life’s challenges. These victories and skills will enable them to create a brighter future for their children and contribute to their communities, enriched by their triumph over adversity.
