A warm, wonderful way to start a chilly touring day. Warm, personal hosts who smoothly displayed their wine-making expertise, while gently teaching novices. Quaint to palace-like settings for tastings. A delicious array of varietals, each with a compelling story. A great experience. My wife and...More

Had the loveliest time at Swanson this afternoon! Nancy was delightful and so insightful to the property and history of the wines. She was so comforting and warm. Me and some colleagues/ friends couldn’t get over how personable the experience was!

We visited Swanson Winery in November on a wine tour and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The wine was delicious (I found a merlot I loved & I typically don’t care for merlot) and the tour was very educational. I cant say enough about the staff and...More

On a rainy day, us girls went in for some wine tasting. The decorations and interior were so festive and fun. Gorgeous! The wine was delicious and it was all around a great, welcoming, enjoyable time! Will definitely be back :)

Swanson has the best of just about everything. It is the best tasting experience that we've had in Napa (and this was our 6th trip). Wine - excellent. Hosts - personable and knowledgeable. But, the food pairings put the tasting experience over the top. The...More
