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.

He started his career working in sports marketing including time with the Kansas City Royals, Atlanta Braves, Atlanta Hawks and others including serving as the in-between inning guy who chose the in-game contestants (fan of the game, etc.) and also the distinct honor of crashing the Braves Mobile the very first day it arrived to the stadium. After nearly a decade in sports he shifted gears and fell into tech as a strategy and business development person as well as a sales executive for three start up companies including one that was acquired by Adobe where he continued to show no skill or ability to use Photoshop.
In 2016 he and his wife came upon Paso Robles and made a gut decision to buy a fixer-upper which had a small hobby vineyard growing Zinfandel just days before their daughter Kaia was born. With no wine experience other than being great wine drinkers they began their path into their passion, wine. They quickly realized the need to find someone willing to teach them the ropes of everything wine and found Gelfand Vineyards, a boutique vineyard and winery. After learning the magic behind the wines at Gelfand, in 2020 the previous owner expressed interest in stepping back and transitioning the business to the Burke’s where just the two of them run the entire operation.  Known for its full-bodied red wines Dresser Winery by Gelfand Vineyards is fortunate to have a loyal following and has become a Paso staple for those looking for boutique and intimate experiences with award-winning wines.

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.
