Kolb Vineyards, LLC
William (Bill) Kolb, Owner
Bill first fell in love with farming grapes in his youth, while spending his summers working in the vineyards of California’s San Joaquin Valley. After a long career as both an IT professional and university graduate professor, he is finally getting back to his roots and realizing his dream of owning his own vineyard.
Although the vineyard is professionally managed, Bill still takes a hands-on approach to vineyard management. His early field experience--and more recently multiple college courses in viticulture--have prepared him for his new role of working in the vineyard to help keep it in a healthy, productive & pristine condition.
Shelley Kolb, Co-Owner
After a career in sales & marketing, Shelley is thrilled to now be part of the Dundee Hills community, and helping in the day-to-day operations of the vineyard.
Jessica Cortell, Vineyard Manager
We are pleased to have our vineyard managed by Jessica Cortell, owner of Vitis Terra Vineyard Services. Jessica holds a Ph.D. in viticulture and wine chemistry, and is the lead Instructor of Vineyard Management at Chemeketa Community College.
While our primary focus is on growing & selling superior Pinot noir fruit, we are also having fun making our own wine for friends & family.
