We remember Joseph, beloved Vice President of Sales at Magnotta Winery, who left us suddenly and far too soon. This website honours Joseph’s life story that we will carry in our hearts. Joseph is reunited now with his father Gabe, a man he idolized, respected and was very proud to call his father. In a speech he gave at his father’s Celebration of Life, Joseph said:

“He just had a way about him. People just saw the champion in him and wanted to be in his corner. He was a modest champion. But, more importantly, classy in defeat. I watched my dad deal with his illness, day in and day out, with the utmost courage and strength. He never complained to me. He never let me think he was mentally broken . . . Throughout my life, my dad taught me so many different lessons. He was prepping me. I couldn’t even begin to describe how much he taught me about being a man . . . I am proud to be my father’s son, the son of a champion.”
