Mauricio Collada

Amigos, I am Mauricio Collada Jr, Owner, and president of Cubanisimo Vineyards. I was born in Habana, Cuba, and my parents left everything they had to bring their 5 kids to start anew in the USA. My adopted country has given me many opportunities to work hard so as to be able to reach for success. I became a neurosurgeon, established a wonderful family, and fell in love with Oregon pinot noir, and the Oregon wine industry. Today I still enjoy the practice of neurosurgery, but also cherish the opportunity of making friends, and sharing our beautiful estate, and our fabulous wines while celebrating my ethnicity.

Debra Collada

Hi! I’m Debra Collada, owner, along with my wonderful husband, of Cubanisimo Vineyards. I wear two hats, that of managing Mauricio’s medical practice and also assisting with the management of our events here at Cubanisimo. I am excited for a wonderful future, meeting many new friends, and enjoying our wines together!

Paige Jones

Hey there! I am Paige, the Manager of Cubanisimo. I come to you all the way from Cincinnati, Ohio. Graduating from the other OSU…Ohio State University with a Business degree, my hope is to transform Cubanisimo into a place of lasting traditions for you and your loved ones.

Raul Torres

Hola Amigos! I am the Vineyard Manager at Cubanisimo. I have been here since I was 18 years old and couldn’t imagine being anywhere different. I take pride in each and every vine and get excited to watch each year come to fruition. One of my favorite things is knowing how much work goes into the vineyard and watching you all enjoy the finished product!

Raelle DuBois

Hey! I am Raelle, a Tasting Room Associate here at Cubanisimo. I was born and raised in this wonderful city called Salem. I love to play poker, go camping, and wine! I have worked at Cubanisimo for many years (too many to count) and have enjoyed every one. I am a part of the family and am blessed to have such awesome people to call my mom and my Maurice.


``We relish the opportunity of sharing the passion and pride we have for our wines as well as our heritage through your enjoyment of Cubanisimo Vineyards.``
Our venture into the wine industry started with the purchase of a 21 acre parcel evaluated for its vineyard potential in 1986. We planted 8 acres of Pinot Noir on our SE facing hillside as we further developed our estate property in the Willamette Valley. Initially our focus was on refining our vineyard management, and we would sell our grapes to larger wineries.
In 2003, we decided to forge ahead with the dream by keeping ½ the product from our vineyards to produce our own wines under the label of Cubanisimo Vineyards. Much soul searching took place in the name selection, and label design since we wanted our homage to our Cuban heritage to be a quality product in every way. Cubanisimo means “very Cuban”, and from the beginning we have committed to developing our wines into the top quality product meriting the name.
In 2005, as our vineyard/winery contracts expired we kept all our grapes, and began construction of our wine tasting room facilities, and slowly started adding to our vineyard plantings. Our wines are currently produced, and bottled at R Stuart & Co. in McMinnville, with plans to move production to our own estate as our wine production increases.
