Josh grew up in the family wine business as a child and returned in 2002 to take over the winemaking and manage the business. La Chiripada has always produced fruit-driven wines and grown special grape varieties that are an expression of this unique region. Josh has continued this same tradition, experimenting with new grape varieties every year. Josh has taken contract winemaking jobs for three vintages in New Zealand to expand his winemaking knowledge.
