From farming to winemaking to tastings, Dresser is driven by those passionate in wine.
– Dresser winery
We’re a small but mighty team creating and selling 2000 cases of wine each year. Passion drives every part of the Dresser Winery experience and we hope you see that in every bottle and every visit.
Kory Burke, Owner - Winemaker, Chief Puncher Downer
Kory and his wife, Catherine, are the ownership team of Dresser Winery. While they divvied up the leadership roles at Dresser, Kory was quick to claim “mine” on the winemaking efforts as well as marketing and sales.

Catherine Burke, Owner, Business Director and Wine Club Director
Catherine serves as the Owner, Business Director and Wine Club Director along with Chief Designer of all things Dresser Winery including the winery experience and the luxury vacation rental, Dresser Winery Estate House. After a successful career working in architecture focused on the design of luxury resorts around the world, she moved into sales for a leading stone distributor providing products to high-end commercial and residential homes on the West Coast. Her passion focuses around the hospitality experience to provide one that is unique and memorable for both the on-site tasting and the Dresser Winery Estate House.

Kaia Burke, Chief Wine Smeller
Kaia is quite literally the driving force behind Dresser Winery. While also serving in her self-described role of “Chief Wine Smeller” where she approves the smell of all wines at all times, she also likes to wow our guests with her blazing speed as she runs around the tasting spot. Kaia is also the namesake of the Dudley Vineyard Kaia Lee wine we make each year that features a piece of artwork from her creativity for that year’s vintage.
Mauricio Rendon, Vineyard Manager
The veteran of Dresser Winery, Mauricio has been here since our second vintage in 2004 managing all operations for the vineyard and assisting in the winemaking process. In 2021, Mauricio had the distinct honor of being named Vineyard Worker of the Year by the Paso Robles Wine Country Alliance, the governing board for the Paso Robles wine industry. Mauricio’s intimate knowledge and experience with our estate vineyard and how best to ensure its longevity and success is central to Dresser Winery’s growth and success.
