& Joshua McCourt
Euan has worked as a winemaker for 10 years in regions all over the world, including France, Spain, New Zealand, Oregon and California. He grew up in New Zealand and learned viticulture on his family’s vineyard while at high school and university. He gained a molecular biology degree with first class honors while in New Zealand, and then pursued his interest in wine production by receiving a Masters in Viticulture and Enology in the Loire Valley in France. Euan joined the Fallbrook team in March of 2016.
Although his love of wine began long ago, Josh has been actively involved in winemaking since 2009. His travels have taken him from the Russian River Valley with Merry Edwards to Santa Barbara County with Clos Pepe and Gainey to Ventura County at Ojai Vineyards. He was thrilled at the opportunity to move back to his home in San Diego with Fallbrook Winery. Josh brings his knowledge of winemaking from other areas in California to Fallbrook Winery here in San Diego County, where hot desert-like conditions combine with the cool salty mists and fog from the ocean to make up the unique terroir.
