Joe in the family vineyard

Passionate, creative, and dedicated to achieving excellence in winemaking, Joe Dobbes established himself as a leading figure in the industry. Founding Dobbes Family Estate and Wine By Joe, he ushered in an era of innovation and risk-taking in the Willamette Valley, all while maintaining a steadfast commitment to showcasing the very best of Oregon.

After fifteen years at the helm of Dobbes and Wine By Joe, Joe has transitioned to a new chapter, founding Iterum Wines alongside his wife Patricia. With a focus on small-batch, estate-grown fruit, Iterum Wines embodies their vision for low intervention and organic winemaking.

While we have changed our name to Dobbes Family Winery, we are still a small, family-run winery in the heart of Oregon’s Willamette Valley. Our definition of family has evolved to include all those we share our lives with from our guests to vineyard partners, to our team, to those who share a bottle of Dobbes wine from afar.
