Henry Preiss

After his father’s wine-importing business changed hands, Henry Preiss founded Preiss Imports, bringing some of the best small liqueurs and wines from Europe into the United States, introducing such iconic brands to the U.S. market as Luxardo and Darroze Armagnacs. Henry retired in 2008, only to find that retirement didn’t agree with him. So he founded HPS Epicurean in 2012. With more than 42 years in the business, Henry has one of the most-educated palates in the business.
