Nice visit and good wine

We had a seated tasting of their wines. 2014 Rosado, 2013 Chrdonnay, 2012 Sangiovese, 2011 Merlot and 2010 Instant Napa. Good wines, we liked the chardonnay very much,

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

I took my mom to wine country in California for her 50th birthday. We both loved our experience here. The wines were just as fun and quirky as the decor. It would be perfect for a girls trip. Our tasting guide was knowledgeable and friendly. Mrs Swanson herself peeped in during our tasting! We ended up buying a few bottles.... More

I had this wine years ago and decided to try a tasting at the Salon. If you can get a reservation in the tasting Salon ... DO IT !!! Their Merlot Reserve (yes Merlot) and the Cabs are to die for. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the appetizers in between the tastings (caviar on a potato chip) were out... More

Called ahead, left a message, got set up eventually and we are glad we did! Don't let the old-style electric gate fool you, these people know hospitality. Their tasting room and salon are decorated in a very eclectic fashion and are very comfortable venues for tasting the wine. And the wine - wow! We went there knowing that their Alexis... More

Tasting appointments are required for many Napa Valley tasting rooms these days and wine tasting at Swanson Vineyards is no exception. But with vineyards turning red, brown and gold and the wine country tourist season winding down, it’s getting easier to snag a drive-by appointment by calling tasting rooms while you’re almost in their driveway. Such was the case this... More

This is a hidden gem as its a small tasting (only like 10 people per tasting), but well worth it as they do a pairing for you. You sit in a private salon (the vineyard is not even marked) so it feels like you are in their home. Its gotten a little cheesy as Alexis has added a bit too... More

I have always been a fan of the Swanson Alexis wine & her bon bons. Visiting the tasting room with dear friends was an extra special treat!
