Josh has been around the wine business all his life, having grown up with vineyards just across the road from the family winery.
Josh has a Diploma in Viticulture and Wine Production and he has also worked in France and California’s Napa Valley. While working the grape harvest in Napa, Josh discovered the possibly little known fact that good wine is made with good beer.
On his return to NZ Josh started experimenting with making beer using some of his winemaking techniques. Moa Beer was born and headed by Josh but he couldn’t leave the wine industry behind.
Today, he manages and co-owns Allan Scott Family Winemakers with his younger sister Sara.
Outside of work Josh is a very competitive sportsman and is a committed multisport event racer. Josh is Dad to George, Gus and Mila.
