About This Producer
Orin Swift Cellars is the realization of a dream that began while Dave Phinney was studying abroad at the University of Florence. When he returned to the States, he worked his first harvest for the Robert Mondavi Winery on the nightshift. The next year, he started Orin Swift Cellars with two tons of purchased Zinfandel grapes.
Phinney's 2005 The Prisoner earned the #17 spot on Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines list, making Orin Swift Cellars a well-known name in fine wine.
