That man is Joseph Carr. After ten years serving as a world-class sommelier and another decade as an international industry executive, in 2005 Joseph Carr set out on his own to create his family-owned, Napa-based wine company. Influenced by Bordeaux and Burgundy, Carr's phi- losophy was to produce wines of balance, sophistication and approachability, com- bining Old World restraint and style with the distinct New World flair that comes from using quality Napa fruit.
