Jason Coates

Operations Manager - Southern Oregon

Born in Columbus GA and raised in Southeastern Alabama Jason Hails from a family with a strong agricultural background. His father's family grew peanuts and cotton and raised Limousin cattle. Jason always knew he was destined to work in the outdoors, and moved from Alabama to Montana in 2001 to make it a reality. He followed up working for a summer in Glacier National Park with attending the University of Montana to pursue a degree in Ecology and Botany. After earning his degree, he worked as a fly fishing guide for 5 years out of Missoula, MT with his clients often receiving an ecology lecture with their fishing trip.
 
Jason moved to Oregon in 2010 and became involved with the Southern Oregon Wine Institute at Umpqua Community College. His degree in Botany was a natural fit with the viticulture program at UCC and his eagerness to dive into the profession, as well as his keen tractor driving skills, led him to an internship at Abacela which quickly evolved into a vineyard management position. Jason joined Results Partners South in January of 2016 as the Operations Manager. Jason enjoys working with RP's extremely knowledgeable staff and diverse cliental. Not one to sit still for very long, he enjoys the challenge and science behind managing multiple vineyards and grape varietals in different subregions and microclimates.
 
Outside of the vineyard you can find him spending time with his wife and daughter or chasing winter steelhead, salmon and trout in one of Oregon's beautiful rivers.
