After 20 years in the industry, first as a sommelier and then working directly with wineries, Joseph Carr followed a dream to make his own wine in Napa Valley. In 2002, he decided to pursue his passion, learning to make wine alongside Ted Edwards at Freemark Abbey. Now as a successful winemaker in his own right, Joseph Carr employs a European sensibility in winemaking that emphasizes balance, complexity and elegance to produce high quality, hand-crafted, ultra-premium Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay at exceptional value.
Joseph Carr sources fruit from Northern California’s finest appellations – the St. Helena, Rutherford, Stags Leap District, Pritchard Hill, Carneros, Oakville and Paso Robles AVAs. Carr’s relationships across Napa Valley give him access to lots that could have gone into $100 bottles, but are instead blended to make Joseph Carr wines.
