Although their first vintage was in 1968, Joseph Swan Vineyards is still young at heart. The passion and curiosity that Joe Swan brought to his craft are still evident in the winery today. Located in the heart of the famed Russian River Valley, now often proclaimed ground zero for great pinot noir, they embrace the artisanal spirit that defines this amazing growing region. The winery's roots were in old vine zinfandel and estate chardonnay and pinot noir. Today, they continue to embrace those wines but also, in recognition of the amazing quality and personality grapes grown by talented and dedicated winegrowers can achieve in this wonderful region, they have added a number of other wines to their portfolio. Each of their wines is a unique expression of its terroir and the vintage. While all carry the hallmark winery signature of balance and personality, they span a broad range of aromas, flavors, and textures. As their winemaker often says, “the journey is often more exciting than the destination”.
