Joshua Arnold

Joshua’s journey into winemaking began in 2001, when his parents purchased a plot of land in Turley, NM and set out to create Wines of the San Juan.  With his father as mentor, he apprenticed as assistant winemaker until 2013, and through the years, the team earned recognition both nationally and internationally for their wines.  He assumed the role of head winemaker in the spring of 2013, and has since been awarded many medals for his wines at international wine competitions, such as the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition and the Finger Lakes International Wine Competition, as well as receiving 90+ point ratings from one of the world’s most influential wine critics, James Suckling.  With his robust, fruit forward wines, Joshua is passionately producing a high quality product for the New Mexico wine industry.
