Geoff Webb's relationship with wine began in 1986 when he went to work for Canada's largest wine-buying cooperative - The Opimian Society & Opimian Vineyard Trust - vineyard partners in Napa, California with The William Hill Wine Company - when Geoff got his first exposure to viticulture & winemaking.
Webb then worked for Legendary Wines (1989) until 1993 when he founded Wines By Design, importers and blenders of wines from around the globe, incl. France, Italy, Spain and Argentina. In 1999 the California partnership was wound-up and Webb was invited to join the group to head-up a new Canadian wine venture. He chose the up and coming area of Prince Edward County to invest, plant vines and start a winery in Picton, where Black Prince was born in 2001.
From 1999 on Webb has called upon the services of his mentor Michael Fallow (Winemaker William Hill, Napa) and Terence Van Rooyen (Winemaker/Professor Niagara College Teaching Winery) for guidance and advice, and both have helped Webb shape the winemaking program at Black Prince over the last 12 years.
