Peachy Canyon Winery Announces Winemaker Josh Beckett to Move to Consultant Role

Posted on January 08, 2013

Josh Beckett, winemaker and son of owner Doug Beckett, has announced that he will move to a consulting role at Peachy Canyon Winery. He has hired Terry Culton, formerly of Adelaida Cellars, as winemaker. Terry has a proven record of making highly sought-after wines with consistent 90+ ratings in every major industry publication.

Josh Beckett will stay on in an executive role as a partner of the family-owned Peachy Canyon Winery. He will begin to take a full-time role as winemaker for his own brand immediately.

When asked about the change, Josh mentioned, “I have always been a huge fan of Terry’s wine over the years. The experience that he brings to Peachy Canyon making wine throughout California and Oregon will bring us new ideas and knowledge. He is considered by many as one of the world-class wine producers today coming out of Paso Robles.”
