Joe’s Story

Hi, we’re Wine by Joe!

Established in 2002, the Winery is celebrating its 15th year of making chug-ably delicious Oregon wines where you get more for less. It’s been our mission to make really good, approachable wines at a really good, affordable price. With 5 different wines under our roof, we have a little something for everyone, for any occasion!

It was the notion of gathering with friends, family, and neighbors to enjoy a bottle, a meal and conversation that Wine By Joe is rooted in. For us, making wine is our way of recognizing and sharing the Oregon spirit, wrapped up in who we are and how we take care of our people and our planet. The majority of our grapes are sourced from our 214 acre estate Sea Breeze Vineyard, and the rest are sourced throughout Oregon. With location, elevation and soil types playing such a large role when sourcing grapes, we focus on creating complexity through diversity while combining grapes from different regions. They have a story to tell; we just listen. Here at Wine By Joe, we’re taking steps and evolving towards a greener future by creating honest wines and making moves towards viable farming dobbes-circlepractices.

Wine By Joe is your naturally delicious, go-to wine. It’s that perfect guest you can bring to any party that gets along with everyone — our wines pair best with backyard BBQ’s, loud music, trailhead or park picnics, or #WineWednesday dinner parties. Wine is meant to be shared – so pour, sip, share and enjoy.

The man behind Wine By Joe

After working in the business for others internationally and in Oregon, I started Wine By Joe with a small amount of money in my back pocket, a lot of experience and passion, and a sufficient ignorance of what I was against. Today, our multi-faceted wine company is one of the largest in the state. We own 214 acres of vineyard and benefit from the work of more than 30 full-time, dedicated employees, as well as dozens of part-time and seasonal workers.
