Prosser was interviewed by Linfield College archivist Rich Schmidt.Jim Prosser is the owner and winemaker at J.K. Carriere Wines. Founded in 1999, the winery's name comes from a contraction of his grandfathers' names. In 2007, Prosser purchased 40 additional acres of land on Parrett Mountain, and in 2009 he planted vineyard blocks and completed a new winery building. J.K. Carriere produces high acid, smooth tannin, classically built Pinot Noir, along with a small quantity of mineral-oriented Chardonnay.
