“There’s a soul to this business.. that soul isn’t just from the people who make wine, it’s from everyone who loves wines that make them feel something.” — Dave
Led by legendary winemaker Dave Phinney, Orin Swift is a collection of art and storytelling that comes to life in one-of-a-kind labels and wine styles. While traveling internationally, Dave Phinney spent hours ripping out images from magazines to piece together the Abstract label, the complex layers of the collage echoing the finessed styling of the wine within.
Abstract is a Grenache-based blend with Syrah and Petite Syrah, that represents all of California – all of the pieces, climates and features that tell a story of the state. Dave starts with over 100 different lots of wine, searching for the right components of the blend. Individually, they’re good wines, but together, they tell a full, complex story, like a collage.
Orin Swift is a California based wine label and creative studio. Wine will always be core to our creative output, but it won’t be limited by it. We make films, publications, art, events, products, destinations – anything required to bring creative ideas to life.
Orin Swift is a collection of art and storytelling that comes to life in one-of-a-kind labels and wine styles. Led by legendary winemaker Dave Phinney, Orin Swift’s portfolio is known as much for its creative and evocative expression of art on the front of the bottle as it is the bold, yet finessed styling within the bottle. Dave's passion for wine dates to 1995 when David Swift Phinney went to Florence, Italy to spend a semester “studying.” During that time, he was introduced to wine and how it's made, and he was hooked. After graduating university a few years later, he started working for Robert Mondavi Winery as a harvest worker. It was there he decided that if he was going to work this hard, it needed to eventually be for himself. In 1998, he founded Orin Swift Cellars; Orin is his father’s middle name and Swift is his mother’s maiden name. With two tons of zinfandel and not much else, he spent the next decade making wine for others, as well as himself, and grew the company into an iconic wine house known for its uncompromising creativity.
Orin Swift wines offer unique, incomparable storytelling behind every bottle, providing a non-traditional offering in the historically traditional luxury wine segment. Dave and his winemaking team are dedicated to expressing geographic diversity in their sourcing, creating wine blends from a range of California’s premier sites – predominantly Napa Valley. Dave sets his sights on small lots within the most coveted growing regions while ensuring that only fruit of the highest quality makes it into the final blend, resulting in a portfolio of wines that appeal to a variety of senses. Every wine in the portfolio, from the vineyard source to the distinct artwork adorning the label, offers a unique point of view while creating a heart-skipping impression.
LOUIS M. MARTINI HIGHLY ACCLAIMED WINES
Our family has been crafting world-class Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa’s finest vineyards since 1933. Louis Martini voyaged to America with a vision of making the very best wines in the world. He started his storied journey with a simple premise-the best grapes make the best wines. This lead him to Napa Valley, the most coveted wine making region in California. The premise turned into passion, one that passed down through three generations of Martini winemakers. Today, the legacy and tradition carries on at our historic winery where we are dedicated to the craft of Cabernet Sauvignon-a product of passion and perseverance that Louis instilled nearly a century ago. We are one of the first five wineries built in Napa after Prohibition’s repeal in 1933 and have since dedicated ourselves to finding the most coveted vineyards with the finest grapes. The Martini legacy has long been a testament to the family’s dedication and love of wine. A journey which started in Genoa would eventually lead Louis all the way to San Francisco, where the business was born. In the eighty-five years since its inception, we at LMM have committed ourselves to follow in the footsteps of Louis M. to ensure a standard of Cabernet Sauvignon excellence that’s head and shoulders above the rest. A true example of the American dream - pursuing our passion with determination.
Guests will be treated to six SUPERB wines from the two wineries all accompanied with fine cheeses.
