Mingle with other guests and Joseph Phelps Vineyards’ Will Phelps, along with other members of their winemaking team to learn how they went from running one of the largest construction companies in the United States to one of Napa Valley’s premier winemakers. They have been making notable wines since their first harvest in 1973 yielded Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and Johannisburg Riesling bottlings, all custom crushed at nearby wineries. The Joseph Phelps winery was completed in 1974 in time for harvest, crushing grapes for the first Insignia and the first Syrah bottlings. It was a period of unparalleled activity, creativity, ingenuity, entrepreneurship and risk-taking. It put Joe Phelps and his Joseph Phelps Vineyards on the map of top Napa Valley wine producers.
