Joseph enjoys muscadine wine, which is often very hard to find. He also grew up on a farm and has a deep love for agriculture. This former owner of Cafe985, is a 9th generation Cajun, and loves his culture which has been slowly fading for a long time. During the day, Joseph is a computer nerd, focused on maritime cybersecurity, which after 20+ years he has developed a great sense of problem solving through risk management (vulnerability mitigation). There is more but you should get the overall picture by now. When the muscadine flourished, Joseph saw a way to achieve so many goals and a clear cut path before him. One muscadine turned in to many. Blackberries, cherries, mulberries and more were added to the home orchard and tested for the perfect varieties. Before long Joseph purchased more land, and began creating home made wine recipes inspired by people that he lost as a way to keep them alive forever.
After the visit to Perdido Vineyards, Joseph changed his Beach Wedding plans. He discussed it with Ashley, and contacted the team at Perdido V. When the team said yes, the rest of the plans were changed.
It was chaotic, but worked out very well. The small ceremony took place in the center of the main vineyard at dusk, with a hand fasting, using vines from Cajun Vineyards "mother vine".
The pictures are still being edited, but officially, A.Savage.Naquin, is A.Savage.Jaubert. Congrats Ashley and Joseph.
