About Results Partners

Our History

Results Partners was founded in 1985 by the late Mark Benoit under its original name “Willamette Valley Vineyard Services.” In 1986, in response to a growing demand among then Oregon wine industry pioneers for specialty vineyard supplies and equipment, Mark opened the doors to the new Oregon Vineyard Supply. In 1998, Mark sold both companies to Kevin Chambers and Dean Foreseth who renamed the vineyard management company “Results Partners”. They felt the name clearly defined the mission for the company, to provide professional, collaborative vineyard management and development to vineyard owners.

In the following decades, as the industry grew and planted acreage across the state increased, Results Partners expanded its services to over three-thousand acres. The company’s geographic footprint expanded into The Columbia Gorge, Walla Walla, and The Columbia Valley in Washington, catering to both large and small vineyard and winery partners. Now after forty years of providing professional vineyard management and development services in the Northwest, Results Partners continues to foster long-term relationships with vineyard owners, winemakers, and industry leaders, keeping true to our name.

We take great pride in the family of vineyards we manage, always striving to be on the cutting edge of viticultural research

Our Team

Our team-driven management style allows us to draw on the unique expertise and experiences of each of our managers, allowing us to offer more collective vineyard experience, know-how, and personalized service than any other vineyard management company. Each vineyard is discussed within the group, each problem is considered by many, and each success is celebrated collectively.

With Results Partners you’ll find an impressive history of vineyard management from many prestigious West Coast vineyard and winery operations, coupled with diverse international farming experiences in Europe, South America and New Zealand.

Daniel Fey, Results Partners
Daniel Fey


Daniel was raised on a farm in Weinfelden (Wine Field), located in Northeastern Switzerland where his family has been growing grapes since the 1930’s, dominantly Pinot Noir. His dad was a Master Vintner and taught Daniel from an early age vineyard practices and work ethics.

After earning an M.S. degree in horticulture from the Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich, Daniel was an instructor at the Agricultural College of Canton Thurgau where he taught biology, soil science, plant nutrition and crop production to future farmers. Daniel gained additional leadership experience as a Panzergrenadier 1st Lieutenant in the Swiss Army.

Fueled by the Irish saying “The safest place for a ship is a haven but that is not what it’s built for”, Daniel collected his belongings and immigrated to the U.S. in 1998. He worked as a Vineyard Manager for WillaKenzie Estate in Yamhill for eleven years before joining Results Partners in the Spring of 2010. “I like working for RP because of all the interesting people we come into contact with, and it’s a pleasure to work for such a diverse clientele. Aside from a strong management team, I also enjoy working with an experienced and motivated crew who help us to make things happen in the vineyard.”

When not in a vineyard, you’ll find Daniel and his wife Angelina in a pasture on their Yamhill ranch, where they breed, raise and sell high quality Registered Texas Longhorn cattle.


Luke Pedotti, Results Partners
Luke Pedotti
Vice President
Director of Development


A native of Northern California, Luke was raised on his family’s cattle ranch on the Sonoma County coast. It was here and through his involvement in 4-H, FFA and collegiate Agricultural organizations that he gained his appreciation for farming and hard work.  

Luke paired a B.S. in Agricultural Systems Management with a minor in Ag Business and viticulture studies from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo before moving back home to Sonoma County in 1998. Once there he started his viticulture career at Dutton Ranch where he was involved in all phases of vineyard development and management in the Russian River Valley.

A college friend turned Luke on to an opportunity to manage vineyards in the Willamette Valley in 2001. After visiting the valley and being really taken by its beauty, Luke accepted a job offer with Evergreen Agricultural Enterprises in McMinnville to be their vineyard manager. Luke was also Director of Vineyard Operations for Winemakers Investment Properties where he was responsible for vineyards in both Marion and Yamhill Counties. However, it wasn’t until he joined Results Partners that he would feel “most at home”. Among other responsibilities, Luke oversees vineyard development for the company. “I’ve always liked to build things. Seeing the potential in an undeveloped piece of property and turning it into a high quality vineyard operation is very gratifying. I appreciate that RP places a high value on professionalism, not only with clients but between associates and industry peers.” 

Luke and his wife Nikki, daughter Alexis and son Nolan live on a small farm in the Dundee Hills where they raise sheep, goats, chickens and as of 2021 planted their first vines on the property. “Nikki and I have always wanted our children to be raised in a similar rural environment as we did growing up and feel very fortunate that we have been able to realize that here in Oregon.” 


Leigh Bartholomew, Results Partners
Leigh Bartholomew
Director of Viticulture


Ask Leigh where she was raised and you’ll need to reach for a globe. A “Navy Brat”, as she calls herself, home for her growing up was Virginia, Hawaii and exotic faraway places like the Philippines, Japan, Spain and London. After graduating from High School in London, she attended the University of Oregon, then University of California/Davis where she earned her Master’s degree in Viticulture.

Leigh has worked in wine regions around the world, meeting a host of people from a variety of cultures along the way. She gained experience at such respected properties as Domaine Denis Mortet in Gevrey Chambertin; Seresin Estate, Marlborough New Zealand; Robert Mondavi Winery, California; Cain Vineyard and Winery, California; Caliterra/Vina Errazuriz in Chile and Andrew Will Winery in Washington.

Leigh joined Results Partners in 2014, after nearly fourteen years as Director of Vineyard Operations at Archery Summit Winery. Her vineyard management style is a blend of scientific knowledge and experienced instinct, stemming from years of experimenting with pruning techniques, vine spacing, trellising, cover crop and clonal selection.

What attracted Leigh to Results Partners? “The high caliber of individuals working at RP. Each person brings their own experience and expertise, but what is most important, is the synergy that comes from the team approach. Each vineyard is discussed with the group, each problem is considered by many, and each success is celebrated collectively.”

Well-versed in organic and biodynamic farming practices, Leigh’s philosophy is simple “I feel that beyond respecting the land, these methods also yield healthier and more expressive fruit.”

Leigh and her winemaker husband, Patrick Reuter, co-own Dominio IV Winery in McMinnville. She still loves traveling, but her favorite hobby these days is being mom to two sons, getting them “here and there” and watching them grow and mature.


Jose Lopez, Results Partners
Jose Lopez
Director of Vineyard Operations


Born and raised in Mexico, to be exact in the state of Guanajuato, I made the trip to Oregon in 1993 and landed in McMinnville.

Being raised on a farm working, planting, or harvesting row crops was fun and incredibly rewarding but tiring at the same time. I still remember those days when we were walking under the moonlit early hours in the morning as we needed to start as early as we could. My first job in Oregon was growing Christmas trees and since then I knew agriculture was where I wanted to keep working. In 1996 I was introduced to the vineyards and man oh man, right on my first day working in the vineyard knew I had found my home. After spending the next nine years working for the Stoller Family Vineyards learning something new each year I fell in love with the wine grape growing industry. At this point, with a dream in mind, I decided to invest time educating myself and attended community college to learn vine physiology along with participating in wine grape growing meetings.

I joined the Results Partner team in January 2016. I consider myself lucky for having the opportunity to work in such a beautiful industry surrounded by great people with lots of knowledge and passion for what they do.

When not in the vineyard I enjoy playing sports, the dunes, and camping with my family.


Alex Cabrera, Results Partners
Alex Cabrera
Director of Vineyard Operations


While Alex grew up in the Eugene area, he proudly states he is a “Beaver Believer.” Son of an American mother and Peruvian father, his viticulture journey started in Peru, where he worked at his extended family’s pisco business, doing back-breaking work with pergola-trellised grapevines.

Originally a student of the biochemistry and biophysics program at OSU, Alex decided to switch to the Viticulture and Enology program to pursue the science and art of grape growing and wine making. Alex started his career as Vineyard Manager at Abacela, the premier producer of New World Tempranillo located in Roseburg, Oregon, where he oversaw the management and continued development of Abacela’s complex estate vineyards containing varied soil types, many warm climate varietals, and a myriad of topographies.

About working at RP, Alex shares that he enjoys the opportunity to work with a variety of professional clients, farming a broad range of geographical sites with complimentary management philosophies. He is fortunate to be a part of the teamwork and cross-training between managers that allows for enthusiastic discussions on viticultural topics as well as managerial freedom to think “outside the box” on farming values that best meet the client’s needs.

Being a father of two little bundles of ‘ever-present’ joy, Luca and Aitana, keeps his hobbies to a minimum, however the whole Cabrera family enjoys traveling to warm climates, especially visiting family and enjoying the great food of Peru. He and his wife Lorena do find time to stay active, enjoying water and snow sports and continuing to spoil their boxer (lap) dog, named Jackson.


Evan Strode, Results Partners
Evan strode
Director of Vineyard Operations


Originally hailing from the Midwest, Evan has always been around the family business of farming row crops, raising livestock, and brewing choice beverages. It was there in the Midwest where his passion for horticulture and the science behind it began and led him to the University of Missouri.   

While majoring in Food Science and Nutrition with minors in both Enology and Viticulture, Evan found his true passion in the vineyard while working for the University of Missouri’s Grape and Wine Institute. There, he was part of a tight knit team that conducted extensive research throughout the states of Missouri and Arkansas helping to ensure the growth and prosperity of the continental climate grape. When his studies concluded in 2013, he decided to take a leap and see what the Pacific Northwest had to offer. After several internships in the Willamette Valley and Southern Oregon, Evan decided it was time to put down roots. During the winter of 2015, he met with the team of Results Partners, and it felt like home. It was at that time, Evan happily accepted a job as a Viticultural Technician and the rest is, as we say, history! 

During his time at Results Partners, Evan has had his hands in all aspects of the vineyard business. From working with the development team to vineyard operations and production of some of the highest quality vineyards in the industry, Evan says that his true joy comes from working hard alongside everyone that’s involved in the process. “I truly enjoy the ability to work alongside such professionals and leaders within the Oregon Wine Industry. The individuals within the family of Results Partners are truly incredible and invigorating.”   

When he isn’t found in the vineyard, he can be found spending time with his wife Caroline or out playing golf with friends. He says his true hobby and passion is farming but a close second to that is anything sports related. 


Nick Mackay, Results Partners
Nick Mackay
Director of Vineyard Operations –
Columbia Valley


Nick was born and raised in Pasco, Washington where his family settled and began farming in the late 1800’s. His first agricultural experiences came when his father decided to develop 20 acres of land into an estate vineyard in the then new Red Mountain AVA. At a young age Nick knew he wanted to farm wine grapes as a career.

After graduating high school, he attended Washington State University where he majored in Viticulture & Enology and graduated with honors in 2015. Before graduating college, Nick was hired by Mercer Ranches as a Vineyard Irrigation Manager and would become their Vineyard Manager over the following seasons. During his time at Mercer Ranches, Nick assisted in the development of over 250 acres of vineyard, the management of over 2000 acres, and the establishment of the most extensive vineyard mechanization program in the state of Washington.

Nick gained more experience in the industry over the next 2 seasons farming for Shaw Vineyards and managing their 600-acre Horn Rapids Vineyard. In February of 2020 Nick accepted the position and challenge of assisting Results Partners in establishing their presence in the Columbia Valley.

Nick is currently leading operations in the Columbia Valley and offering services including full vineyard management, vineyard development, contract labor, custom machine and hand harvest, and an array of a la carte services.

When Nick is not working, he enjoys spending time with his wife, attending WSU Cougar football games, golfing with friends, and drinking Washington wine.
