Prime Cellars winemaker and owner, Ted Henry, arrived at UC Davis undeclared (aka no direction). One introductory to winemaking class later and he became one of the only people around him who knew what he wanted to do and was having fun doing it. Upon graduation, Ted worked at Trinchero Family Estates enjoying the art of making fine wine with a large budget. Currently he is the winemaker at Jarvis where he has found a whole new world of winemaking philosophies and techniques, including the pleasure of working on a much smaller scale but much bigger vision. Ted is excited to pool his experiences into Prime Cellars winemaking.
In 2013, Prime was very excited to move into the Tasting Room in downtown Napa at 974 Franklin Street. This tasting room is shared with Trahan Winery, another small production winery in Napa.
