Dobbes Family Estate
Winemaker, Joe Dobbes, believes that superb wine depends on the fruit from which it is produced. Therefore, Joe sources fruit from only the best of what Nature has to offer. Careful selection of grape clones from unique vineyards, with a focus on soil composition, site elevation and specific vineyard blocks, is an example to Joe's fine attention to detail. As a result, Dobbes Family Estate wines exhibit distinctive characteristics that mirror the attributes of the terroir.
