David talks with Josh Phelps of the Grounded Wine Company in Paso Robles, makes of the new wine “Public Radio.” Grounded Wine Co. is the personal brand of Napa native Josh Phelps, built to reflect his experience growing up in wine country, and his relationships in the wine community. A grassroots, all-American, wine label, the wines feature grapes from trusted, sustainable vineyards in California and Washington and showcase what it means to be a winemaker today.
Josh’s roots run deep, raised in a winemaking family, he was exposed to the industry from a young age. He continued to build his knowledge of the business through college, selling wine, working harvests, and creating wine for friends with his father, Chris Phelps. With GWCo., Josh hopes to build on this legacy and make his own splash in the wine world while exposing wine drinkers of his own generation to his hometown in wine country. Working with trusted farmers and childhood friends, his company reﬂects his deep understanding of wine, one that can only be developed growing up around the vines.

Her story makes us appreciate our good fortune in living a life filled with good health, family and friends and good wine and food. Wishing you all a very grateful and Happy New Year!
