Yes, there really is a Joe! Joe Dobbes is the man behind your bottle of Wine By Joe. As the sole owner and winemaker of Wine By Joe, LLC, Joe is a busy guy. As he says, "Passion fuels endless energy." Joe has been making wine in Oregon for over twenty years and his passion increases with each vintage. Driven to excellence in his art, Joe Dobbes is the consummate winemaker. Raised in a small town in the north Willamette Valley and educated in Ashland, Joe is a true Oregonian and is dedicated to Oregon wines. Yet his calling began outside Oregon, in Germany and France, where Joe spent 2 1⁄2 years learning the art and science of winemaking. He apprenticed at Wiengut Erbhof Tesch, in the German Nahe region and at Domaine G. Roumier and Domaine Comtes Lafon in the Burgundy region, France, with winemasters Christophe Roumier and Dominque Lafon. – Description from AlexJelena

  • Wine myths are often unspoken but incredibly pervasive. Their looming presence may prevent wine novices from feeling confident about how they drink. Most would agree that wine experiences are best enjoyed with friends, but myths can hinder otherwise joyous wine drinking occasions. “Sparkling wine MUST be enjoyed in a flute glass, or else!” “Wine...

  • There's still some great jazz out there, whether it's original material or great singers covering the standards. I like Joshua Redman, Joe Lovano, Kurt Elling.  There's even some decent original classical composers.  For me, classical went weird with Stravinski and Schoenberg.  I have to be flexible though and realize even my tastes will evolve,...

  • Post here about wines that used to satisfy, but for whatever reason (corporate buyout, founder dying, price gouging or other repositionings resulting from lusting lunges towards greater monetary reward, etc., etc. ad nauseum) have either disappeared or now become a disappointment. The more story, the better.I'll get the ball rolling with some si... Read More

  • We stopped by Trader Joe's this afternoon and I spotted this fine Bordeaux wine....well.....it's from Margaux so it can't be too bad.  I paid $21 and it's resting quietly in my wine rack right now. Read More

  • I've been really bad about posting updates on the house. Structurally, we are finished, and all the walls are painted and floors finished. We have stairs, about to have our big Tansu thing in the middle of them, And we've got a dining room that seats twenty pretty easily.  Maybe more.  (Didn't OT say all that garden building was making him lose ...

  • Can you imagine going to a restaurant and ordering food you’d never heard of, shelling out for a theatre ticket without having some idea of what the show was about, or choosing a dress you didn’t even like? Of course not. But that’s what happens when it comes to wine. Sadly, most people haven’t a clue what they’re buying; the price tag, an attra... Read More

  • Here's something you might look at, Joe. Nothing too challenging here.  Homogenized berry fruit on entry, and by that, I mean that I'm thinking of somebody throwing a bunch of strawberries, blueberries and blackberries into a blender and hitting the puree button.  Other than a being a tad heavy on the acid, I don't find anything offensive about ...

  • Joe,To address sales only, at under $20 point, the Robert Mondavi Private Selection line seems VERY popular out here in CA.  I personally cannot vouch for it, but I've had store wine folks tell me it goes fast, and I have some friends that swear by it.  Again, my advice is for sales not my personal taste :-) Read More
