The funds will be used to expand national and international distribution.
As stated by Joe Dobbes, founder and president and winemaker, the capital will enable the company to grow its own three brands, as well as its custom winemaking, bulk wine and control label business.
Launched in 2001, Wine by Joe is now one of the largest producers in Oregon with 214 acres of estate vineyards. It focuses on crafting traditional Burgundian style wine under three different brands:
– Dobbes Family Estate, a luxury Pinot Noir label;
– Wine by Joe, a value-priced Oregon appellation label, and
– Jovino, an offering available on-premise.
