Who started the Prisoner Wine Company?
Then, did Orin Swift sell the prisoner?
When you combine excellent wines with creative labeling you are bound to grow fast and now his full time job is with Orin Swift. The “Prisoner” label was their flagship wine (in 2010 Dave sold just the Prisoner label to Huneeus Vintners – also owners of Napa's Quintessa Winery).
Subsequently, question is, why did Orin Swift sell the prisoner? Eight years later he had grown The Prisoner into an 85,000-case brand. Keen not to be shackled by its success, Phinney sold The Prisoner in 2008 to concentrate on his boutique brand, Orin Swift, named after his father's middle name and mother's maiden name.
Similarly, it is asked, where is the prisoner wine from?
Located along Highway 29 in the heart of Napa Valley, The Prisoner Wine Company tasting lounge challenges expectations and unravels conformity.
How much did Dave Phinney sell prisoner for?
In 2010 Phinney sold the Prisoner, at that time an 85,000-case brand, to Huneeus Vintners for $40 million.
