When the first wine, The Prisoner, was released two decades ago as a complex blend of some of California’s best and most unusual grape varieties, it swiftly and permanently changed the perception of what a red blend wine could be.

Since then, The Prisoner Wine Company has grown to include a range of rule-bending blends with provocative label designs, being recognized by fans and wine critics alike as one of the most bold and innovative wine brands in the market, leading the resurgence of California luxury red blends and earning “cult” wine status.

Today, the Director of Winemaking Chrissy Wittmann and her team work with over 100 growers in northern California, bringing together exceptional fruit to produce a family of intriguing wines unrestricted by tradition.  The Prisoner Wine Company is located on the legendary Highway29 in Napa Valley and welcomes visitors year-round for unexpected, immersive experiences.

The Label


The Prisoner brand name and flagship label were inspired by an etching titled "Le Petit Prisonnier" by 19th century Spanish artist Francisco Goya. Its subtitle translates to “the custody is as barbaric as the crime”. The sketch is part of Goya’s series The Disasters of War, created as a visual protest to the injustice and brutality of the Spanish War of Independence in 1808.

From their founding, The Prisoner Wine Company has stood against oppression while embracing creativity. Fighting injustices within society, especially those tied to the prison and policing systems, is indelibly etched into the identity and focus of The Prisoner Wine Company commitment as an organization. At The Prisoner, it is known that the problems in the U.S. prison system are ingrained, nuanced, and seemingly intractable. Change can happen and it starts with conversation, collaboration, and creativity.
