Share this article

Joseph Phelps, one of the key figures behind the powerful reputation of Napa Valley wine industry, has passed away.

He is noted for, among other achievements, creating the first Californian Syrah.

His most famous creation, the wine 'Insignia', was bottled by Joseph Phelps Vineyards first in 1974, and since has become a brand known across the world.

The website of his eponymous winery notes that his philosophy was always to “craft a cuvee that represented the best wine he could produce in any given vintage, irrespective of variety – a wine to be known by its own unique name, rather than by the varietal name.”
