Dobbes Family Estate is excited to welcome Gonzales Wine Company to our tasting room for a takeover. Cristina Gonzales is the granddaughter of migrant farm workers from Texas, who moved to Wisconsin to pick cherries in search of a better life. Her passion for wine began while traveling as a backpacker through South America in 2001 and landing in Mendoza, Argentina, the epicenter of South American Malbec. When she returned to the United States, she entered the wine industry and eagerly gained hands-on experience, working harvests in California, Oregon, Tasmania, and Australia. She launched Gonzales Wine Company in 2010, which strives to create minimal intervention, small production, accessible wines. Cristina serves on the board of AHIVOY Oregon and the Oregon Wine Board. She resides in Portland, Oregon with her son, their cattle dog, Bean and makes bold red and aromatic white wines from Washington and Oregon grapes in the heart of SE Portland.
