Joe Halsell

Co-Owner/CEO

In 1999, Joe launched his own branch of Halsell Construction in the Bay Area, but it wasn't long before he joined forces with his folks and his brother James to make Halsell Builders a family affair. As president/CEO, Joe leads the company's dynamic team of construction and design professionals. It means that every day, he's interacting with employees and clients, and that's important for a people person like Joe. As he explains it, being part of something much bigger than just your project is important, and it all starts with people. When Joe's not hard at work for his clients, he's busy with his other full-time job - being a dad.

We love wine! (and building wineries.)

The remarkable growth and recognition of the Central Coast wine industry requires an equally remarkable team of local building experts. As locals, we understand the building climate and culture - and the land.

And we bring to the table a passion and creativity for planning, design, and construction matching that of the vintners for whom we build. It's evident in our work at the Riverbench Winery & Tasting Room in Santa Maria Valley, the Riverbench Tasting Room in Santa Barbara's Funk Zone, the Sanford Tasting Room in Santa Barbara's La Arcada, the new Andrew Murray Tasting Room in Santa Ynez Valley on the Foxen Canyon Wine trail, currently under renovation, and the brand new Santa Rosa Road Winery & Hospitality Center, which is breaking ground off Santa Rosa Road in the Santa Rita Hills.
