This Scattered Peaks 2018 vintage Premiere Napa Valley wine is a true blockbuster!

Joel  Aiken

Winemaker, Scattered Peaks

Winemaker, Joel  Aiken

Joel hails from Fresno, raised in ag land. By the time he was 10, he had a healthy appreciation for agriculture: young Joel would load up an old wooden wagon with peaches from the family farm and hawk alongside the highway for cash. When it came time to leave for college, Joel’s mother suggested UC Davis and thank Bacchus she did! Soon after graduation, Joel was hired by Beaulieu Vineyards, the youngest winemaker in company history. Truly a Cabernet maven, Joel has worked with over 50 vineyards in the Napa Valley – this man knows his Cab!

Country born: USA

Education: Master's degree in Enology from UC Davis. Many trips to wineries in Europe to study vineyards and wine production techniques. Andre Tchelistcheff was a great mentor for me.

Years in the wine industry: 30+ years

Winemaking Philosophy:
I like to work with great vineyards and showcase the best qualities of the fruit without overpowering it with heavy handed winemaking. I strive to make beautifully balanced wines.
