Josh Beckett has an old school approach to growing and making wine with a new school attitude. He’s been in the wine industry his entire life but continues to learn and grow, collaborate with his peers and try new things in the vineyard and in the winery.
As a kid, Josh grew up at Peachy Canyon Winery with his family, founders Doug and Nancy Beckett. He worked in every aspect of wine, learning techniques and farming practices from legends and colleagues in Paso Robles and throughout California. In the early 2000s Josh worked at Cape Mentelle Winery in Margaret River, Australia and returned to Paso with a few new tricks as head winemaker at Peachy Canyon Winery. Later, he shook things up with his brother, Jake Beckett, and their brand, Chronic Cellars. Chronic was an outlet for Josh to experiment with unconventional blends, small lots of fruit and new age winemaking techniques. After selling Chronic Cellars to WX Brands, Josh developed and planted Thibido vineyard in 2018 and 2019. This vineyard is the culmination of Josh’s experience, planted with several varietals, rootstocks and trellising styles in order to maximize the quality of the fruit and minimize the need for overly invasive winemaking.
Planting Thibido vineyard and shepherding the fruit from dirt to bottle is the ultimate expression of true winemaking. Josh Beckett
Gibsey Beckett loves bringing people together with wine. “Memories are marked and made while enjoying a special bottle of wine. I love the tradition of bringing a wine to the table to enhance the meal and the moment.” A minimalist designer at heart, she has collaborated with Josh to create Thibido winery as a reflection of their experience in the industry. Her experience in the wine industry dates back to the early 2000s, specializing in marketing and design. She set out to create thoughtfully made products and packaging with a nod to the environment.
“These days I’m drinking our Grenache Blanc, First Date, for the citrus notes and tropical undertones. It pairs well with happy friends and lemon garlic chicken.”
Gibsey is proud to lead Thibido winery in its mission to deliver premium wines made with sustainable practices and produced in environmentally friendly packaging. Wine is a catalyst and Gibsey has connected Thibido to several organizations on a global and local scale to give back and get involved in the community; 1% For The Planet, MUST! CHarities, and At Her Table SLO.
We Are Earth Minded
Every step of the way, from our regenerative farming practices to our packaging materials, we’re committed to reducing our environmental impact. Where other luxury brands present their wine in heavy glass bottles with decorative capsules or wax finishes, we consciously selected light weight glass and minimalist packaging in order to reduce our carbon footprint. We use 100% Post-Consumer Waste Paper on all of our labels and printed marketing materials to lower greenhouse gases and preserve precious resources. Our packing materials and shipping boxes are eco-friendly and 100% biodegradable. We are proud to do our part to protect the environment we love and respect.
