Joel Gott is one of the most successful and creative wine producers to come along in the last twenty years or so. Along with his wife, Sarah who previously was a winemaker at Joseph Phelps, Joel created a Zinfandel in Amador County that won them the praise of Robert Parker. Soon after, Joel broadened his wine making and various other delicious wines followed along with several other ventures.

Joel Gott is a very active and creative businessman who with his brother opened a classic burger restaurant in California ( an obvious natural pairing for his Cabernet and Zinfandel) and is also known for his wine and food dinners that are delicious and reasonably priced.

Joel has also gotten involved with philanthropy, including his partnership with the late Paul Newman by helping to launch the Newsman’s Own Wines.
