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.

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!
