After working with grapes from all over California, PRIME's winemaker, Ted Henry, launched PRIME Cellars with the 2005 vintage to focus on a prime piece of Napa Valley called Coombsville. With its cooler temperatures and unique flavor and acid profile, Coombsville was approved as Napa Valley's newest AVA in 2012. In 2013 we opened our Downtown Napa tasting room at 974 Franklin Street.
Ted remains the winemaker at Napa Valley's Jarvis Estate and has been making wine in Napa Valley since his graduation from UC Davis' winemaking program in 1999. PRIME wines are extremely limited with production levels of less than 1000 cases annually. SIGN UP for our new wine club here.
