The Salon Tasting with Rosemary is one of the best if not the best tasting experience in the Valley. The Salon Tasting experience is by appointment only and $60 a person if you are not a wine club member and it is well worth it. Our 24 year old daughters and some of their friends made the trip with us.... More

We visited the Swanson Vineyards “salon” tasting room on a recent visit to Napa. The setting was lovely and our host for the afternoon was incredibly knowledgeable. It’s always nice to go to a tasting in a more intimate setting (the table is limited to eight people), away from the crowds that you can find at some places in Napa.... More

Been meaning to schedule a tasting here for years and finally did it. Justin was a great host and a wealth of information. A great wine, caviar, cheese and chocolate pairing. Wonderful wines and a beautiful/unique tasting salon to enjoy them in. What a wonderful way to end the day in Napa......the Angelica at the end was to die for......

The vineyard is so easy to miss, i guess its considered boutique. But you start off with a glass of wine while you walk around the grounds. once inside, its all business with wonderful wines and cheese. The art work is very french and its also one of the few vineyards worth going for a follow up visit. If possible,... More

This was one of our favorite winery visits as the experience was unlike any other. The quiet and peaceful courtyard where we sat outside was charming and the tasting unhurried. We did the shorter 'sip shoppe' tasting. The wines are very good; we left with two bottles of the Merlot - which we haven't opened yet - and two of... More

Loved the whole wine tasting experience at Swanson Vineyards, from the tasting room decor to the wines, but mainly our hostess Mindy! She was impressively knowledgable, but also sweet, personable and unpretentious! The wine tastings were paired with small exquisite bites. We have experienced tastings at Opus One, Duckhorn, Trefethen, BV, T/vine, Caymus, and Chateau Montelena but the tasting at... More

Wow. First and foremost, what a lovely family the Swansons are. We went to the Lobster Soirée event last night and had an amazing evening with delicious food and an incredible personalized concert by Carlos Reyes. We experienced such wonderful treatment and such a beautiful evening as our first time there. We are wine members, but they made everyone feel... More

We booked the whole salon and were treated to many of Swanson's excellent wines plus delicious appetizer bites too. The price was on the higher side for the valley but the experience was worth it. Very pleasant staff and delicious tastings.

Kaitlin hosted my group of 18 with grace and warmth in the Sip Shop. For several guests, this was their first trip to Napa and Swanson was a great place to begin our day. Kaitlin was jovial and informative, proud of their wine, and handled questions with ease and graciousness. Our guests felt very comfortable and welcomed there. The courtyard... More
