Josh grew up in the Napa Valley and, as a young child, he would often join his father in the vineyards as he worked and ran Clark Vineyard Management, the company his father started in 1978. After graduating from Cal Poly with a degree in Ag Engineering and Ag Business, he worked for a large family owned vineyard in the Central Coast.
A few years later there was an opportunity to return to the Napa Valley and to pursue a dream of running his own business. Josh worked with his father for two years and then took over the business in 2000. Josh has grown Clark Vineyard Management over the years and now manages some of the Napa Valley’s most prominent vineyards.
Producing his own wine is a way for Josh to express his passion for what goes into each bottle of wine from the first steps of vineyard development, to the day the grapes are delivered to the winery.
