As a fifth generation Napa Valley winemaker, Joseph learned his way around a vineyard long before he was able to drink wine. By the time he was 19 he knew that he would continue his family’s winemaker legacy, working alongside his father at Caymus Vineyards. In 2001, he created Belle Glos, with a focus on vineyard-designated Pinot Noirs from California’s best coastal regions.More recently, he has launched a number of new brands under Copper Cane Wines & Provisions.
Joseph has a keen interest in contributing to the evolution of the wine industry, by discovering new winegrowing locations and experimenting in the cellar. He is thrilled to release BÖEN – an expression of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay made in his signature style of rich, ripe fruit flavors balanced with bright acidity and judicious hints of toasty oak.
In 1849 when gold was discovered in California, people came from all over the world to stake their claim. Overnight, it seemed, the tiny port of San Francisco grew into a sprawling city. Many of the new pioneers sought their fortunes not in the gold fields of the Sierra foothills but in farming the fertile valleys north of San Francisco. Food and wine from Napa and Sonoma soon supplied San Francisco’s burgeoning and increasingly affluent population.
