The Prisoner Wine Company

The Prisoner Wine Company

We work with passionate, devoted growers to source varietals from the best vineyards and appellations located across California in order to create interesting wine blends that are thought provoking and approachable.

The Team

With over a decade of winemaking experience at Ravenswood crafting Zinfandel, Winemaker Jen Beloz, The Prisoner Wine Company’s family of growers, and our winemaking team work together to craft our selection of distinctly stylistic wines. These include: The Prisoner, Saldo, Cuttings, Thorn and Blindfold.

“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.” —Winemaker, Jen Beloz

Jen Beloz, Winemaker

“My physiology professor at University of San Francisco really encouraged me and my classmates to go to medical school,” Jen recalls. “But I wanted to be a winemaker. So he set me up to work at his friend’s small winery in Australia, hoping that the backbreaking work would make me run for the hills. Well, it did. The hills just happen to be covered with vines.”

Jen’s first experience in California winemaking was at Cline Cellars, where she worked in the lab and cellar for two years. She joined Ravenswood winery in 2000 and studied full time to work toward a Master’s Degree in Enology at the University of California at Davis. She spent over 10 years at Ravenswood working under the mentorship of Joel Peterson (The Godfather of Zin), managing grower relations, scouting new vineyards and crafting blends with particular focus on the single vineyard projects.

Jen joined The Prisoner Wine Company in August 2011 for the simple fact that it would allow her to lead a talented team dedicated to truly distinct wines from a family-owned and operated producer. “I love the challenges,” she says. “Winemaking offers a great balance of mental and physical challenges that keep me on my toes.”
