Jacob R. Beckett, General Sales Manager
Jacob R. Beckett was born January 1st 1976 in San Diego, California. When Jake was six, his parents, Doug and Nancy Beckett, decided to move the family up to Paso Robles and buy property in Peachy Canyon. It was at the Beckett’s home, out off of Peachy Canyon Road, where the family started the winery in 1988.
Jake began making wine with his dad at age 9, and planted his first vineyard when he was 14 years old. Jake farmed 10 acres of dry farmed, head-trained Zinfandel throughout his high school years before going off to college.
In 2000, Jake graduated from CSU Stanislaus with a Bachelors Degree in Anthropology and minored in Spanish. The day after graduation, he moved back to Paso Robles and began working for the family business, Peachy Canyon Winery. A year later, Jake became the Vineyard Manager for all four estate vineyards.
In 2004, Jake married his lovely wife, Dawn, and together they purchased their first home in Paso Robles. Jake became the East Coast Sales Manager in the Fall of 2005. Between sales trips and overseeing the vineyards back home, Jake and Dawn started their family. During the summer of 2006, baby Braydon made a sweet little addition to the Beckett family.
As the Winery has grown, so did his responsibilities selling wine across the country. In 2006, Jake became the General Sales Manager and resigned as the vineyard manager. Recently, Jake joined the ZAP Organization and became the Central Coast Director. Between Zap meetings, sales trips, and helping out wherever he can during harvest. Jake is a very busy man!
