Josh Cellars is a negociant brand, so we don’t own a winery or any vineyards, much like some of the world’s greatest chateaux in Bordeaux & Burgundy. We do, however, work with California’s best growers to build a superior wine blend. Our winemaker spent over a decade making sparkling wine at one of the world’s largest and most prestigious champagne houses, where blending distinct lots is essential to making great wine. Those experiences make him uniquely qualified to source and assemble wine blends of great character and complexity, in the signature Josh Cellars style: fruit forward and rich, with approachable tannins and a long finish.
Joseph Carr was an award winning Sommelier and international wine industry executive who set out on his own in 2005 and founded Joseph Carr Winery in Carneros, California. It was, as Mr. Carr says, a chance to follow a dream. “We’re a family owned company dedicated to making world class, handcrafted wines. We work with small growers, coopers and winemakers producing elegant, sophisticated, yet approachable wines from Napa Valley, Carneros, and the North Coast of California. ”
