The Prisoner Wine Company

In the relentless pursuit of creating inherently delicious wines, we are inspired by making wines that are truly unique and intriguing. Our mission is to forge our way off the beaten path, seek interesting varietals and blend them together to make wines that are authentic, approachable and thought-provoking.

The Team

When we took ownership of The Prisoner and Saldo in 2009 from Orin Swift, we knew assembling the right team would be essential. With more than a decade of winemaking experience at Ravenswood crafting Zinfandel, Jen Beloz was the ideal person to take the lead. In order to remain true to the wine's original style and vision, Jen worked alongside Dave Phinney, founder of The Prisoner, for the first two vintages.

In 2012, she took the lead and seamlessly blended the wines across the entire portfolio.
Jen's role extends far beyond the cellar to grape sourcing and collaborating with our family of vineyard growers. Much of her time is spent visiting our vineyard sites across California's premier wine-growing regions, carefully assessing the style and quality of the fruit in order to create authentic and impactful wines.








“This is a fantastic team. Everyone brings something unique to the table but at the end of the day, passion for our wines brings us together.”






“I’m motivated by the freedom I have to make creative blends. Our scope is unlimited — we source fun varietals and get to work with passionate, devoted growers. Ultimately it’s about making unique wines that we want to drink.”
