Shadowbox Cellars

Justin Preiser

Chief Operations Officer

With a limited production of around 350 cases each year, Shadowbox Cellars is one of the smaller wineries in the Napa Valley. And considering that most of their offerings are between a 25 and 150 case allotment, these are truly limited wines. In charge of most of the “grunt work” at Shadowbox Cellars since the inaugural 2009 vintage has allowed Justin to get an education in many aspects of the wine business, and now with Shadowbox winemaker Jason Moore, he is excited to continue expanding his knowledge by learning as much as possible about the production side

Justin grew up in South Florida and with both parents being food and wine writers, there is little doubt why he was drawn to Napa. After school at the University of Colorado at Boulder, he moved to the Napa Valley and began his day job as Director of Operations for The Preiser Key Concierge magazine. He met his wife, Stacy, in December of 2008 when Stacy was visiting Napa from Texas. It did not take long before they were travelling to and from Northern California and Texas almost every weekend. Stacy moved to Napa, and in September of 2010, they were married.
