Gladys’ son Joseph has been an entrepreneur since he started selling sunglasses from Tijuana to fellow students in high school. He went on to live in Paris, France for a year and half and then came back to San Diego to open his own swimming pool maintenance company, using skills learned maintaining the Vineyard Hacienda swimming pool while growing up.
He went on to work in real estate, then became a bartender in Little Italy while attending and graduating from San Diego State for a degree in Business Management with emphasis in Entrepreneurship and a minor in Marketing. Early in 2014, he became general manager for a Ramona winery, but is now implementing the knowledge learned in Ramona at Vineyard Hacienda.
Joseph has studied martial arts since age six, and has a black belt in Muay-Thai as well as belts in other martial arts. His heart, however, will always remain where he grew up working on the beautiful land at Vineyard Hacienda.
