Ted Farrell is President of Haskell's, one of the country's finest wine stores. Being a family business, Ted has been in the wine industry for majority of his life. His father, Jack Farrell, and grandfather purchased Haskell's in 1970 from Fritzy Haskell. Then only one store, Haskell's now has 13 locations in Minnesota. Ted had to do a multitude of tasks and jobs eventually working his way up the Haskell's ladder. That experience allowed Ted to develop a palate for wine, spirits, ales, and all types food.

Currently, Ted travels the world's wine regions selecting the highest quality and best valued wines to send back to Minnesota for his customers to enjoy.
