The Prisoner's founder and ..., 10 Dec 2015 [cached]
The Prisoner's founder and winemaker Dave Phinney's deep respect for the vineyards is rooted in an early attempt to make a sophisticated wine from a difficult site. "I came away from that experience with the unshakable belief that if you put your emphasis on the vineyard, what follows is much easier," he says.

Most of you reading this are quite familiar with The Prisoner and may know Dave Phinney was the winemaker and owner of The Prisoner.
Fast forward Dave sells the company and wants to do something cool and challenging. Hence the Locations brand, he picked several countries which are known for growing and making great wine, the simple part. Next the difficult part selecting vineyards in these various countries that could make a great wine. Lastly the fun part working & meeting with the vineyard owners to make the best wine possible. Sounds great the only thing is you need the skill of a Dave Phinney who has proven that he can manage vineyards and blend grapes to make a delicious wine.

Stanton Vineyards - Dave Phinney, Winemaker
Dave Phinney, winemaker As a critic from Groezinger Wine Merchants aptly described, "Doug Stanton, vine guy, and David Phinney, wine guy, appear to have a great thing going here.
Ever since we first introduced you to Doug back in '99, and Dave back in '00, they've been two of our most popular and reliable suppliers of croed pleasing alcoholic beverages.
When it came time to select a new winemaker starting with the 2002 vintage, by resounding recommendations, Doug Stanton looked no further than wine industry "rising star" Dave Phinney of Orin Swift fame.
While an aspiring attorney in college, Phinney traveled to Italy and was so inspired by the vineyards, the wines, and the artistry of the process, that he decided his dream was to be a winemaker instead. Phinney got his start by working harvests at Robert Mondavi and Opus One. To continue his search for knowledge, Phinney went to work at Whitehall Lane where he trained under winemaker Dean Sylvester. Phinney has since honed and applied his unique skills and understanding of how to nurture the most complex, aromatic, and full bodied wines to his own label, Orin Swift, which include such critically acclaimed, cult wines as The Prisoner, Mercury Head, and most recently, Papillon.
As Stanton Vineyards owner attests, "The strength of our wines comes through our vineyard ownership and farming techniques coupled perfectly with the strength of Dave Phinney's winemaking talents."
