Orin Swift Masterclass
April 11 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
If you don’t know Phinney by name you probably know The Prisoner wine. This Zinfandel blend is a testament to Napa wines that also put red blends on the map. The Prisoner was the cornerstone of Phinney’s Orin Swift Cellars, propelling the brand to stardom. After years of hard work and well-deserved fame Phinney sold Orin Swift and his other wine brands and assets for a cool $300 million. Today, he moved onto new projects which we will taste. His perfectionist methods in winemaking is clear, as each wine is flawless in winemaking technique.
