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 appreciates the cultivation of eco-conscious artistry on all levels and has been in the wine industry since the early 2000s. She specializes in marketing and design, and has collaborated with Josh to create Thibido winery as a reflection of their experience in the industry and a movement in creating genuine products with a conscience.
Gibsey appreciates wines reflective of their varietals and authentic to their heritage.
“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.
