Raised in the Pacific NW, Jake has always had a love for film and the great outdoors. Jake followed his passion and film-making dreams, and in 2014 earned a Cinema Studies degree from the University of Oregon. After college, he moved to Los Angeles with his wife to pursue a career in screenwriting. Some time after they both realized their hearts would always call them back to Oregon and made the decision to move back home eighteen months later. Following other life interests, Jake started working with Dobbes Family Estate in 2015 and very quickly found wine-making to be a true passion. He now works with us as a Cellar Technician and continues to enjoy learning the ins-and-outs of the wine industry. In his free time, Jake likes to spend time hunting, fishing and exploring Oregon with his wife Meagan and dog Leia.
