“Iterum is all about getting back to my roots and being highly focused. I am just where I want to be, back in the vineyard getting dirty, farming organically, calling on all my years of experience and creating. I am rejuvenated, excited, and blessed to be in this position, and I am making the most exciting wines of my career.” – Joe Dobbes
The Iterum portfolio includes limited quantities of estate bottlings from Joe and Patricia’s Eola-Amity Hills property, The Orchard House Vineyard. The estate is planted on what used to be fruit orchards, now considered to be the heart of Eola-Amity’s wine country. Joe calls this western mid-slope of the Eola-Amity Hills, the Eola-Bench, or the 90210 neighborhood of the Eola-Amity Hills. The 21-acre estate is located at 485 – 625 feet in elevation with 11.98 acres planted to vines. Varietals include Pinot Noir clones 114 and 115, planted in 2000, and Chardonnay clones 548 and 76 planted in 2016. New to the property is Sauvignon Blanc planted in 2021.
The Iterum portfolio includes estate designate Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and soon an estate Sauvignon Blanc. Estate grown Sparkling Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are currently en Tirage and to be released in several years. Also included in the portfolio are a handful of ‘Old Friends,’ bottlings produced from truly exceptional vineyards, varietals, and rare clones which Joe has worked with over the past thirty-seven vintages and are essential to his story.
