Winemaker, Josh Phelps
Josh's roots run deep, raised in a winemaking family, he was exposed to the industry from a young age. He continued to build his knowledge of the business through college, selling wine, working harvests, and creating wine for friends with his father, Chris Phelps. With GWCo., Josh hopes to build on this legacy and make his own splash in the wine world while exposing wine drinkers of his own generation to his hometown in wine country. Working with trusted farmers and childhood friends, his company reﬂects his deep understanding of wine, one that can only be developed growing up around the vines.
“My favorite part about making wine in these different regions throughout the West Coast is that I get to be a part of these different winemaking communities. So much of it is about the people.”
