Orin Swift Owner, Dave Phinney
Dave Phinney, Owner of Orin Swift Winery
The Orin Swift story is an interesting one and started as a dream for winery owner Dave Phinney while he was studying abroad at the University of Florence in Florence, Italy. As he explains on his website, "Like so many other college students I was at odds with what to do upon graduation. Fortunately for me, my roommate at the time was from an old wine family in the Sonoma valley and he had a great suggestion: "Why not get into the wine business? You seem to like wine."
He went from Italy, to the University of Arizona where he was studying political science, to the heart of wine country, working his first harvest for the Robert Mondavi Winery. The next year, Dave explains, he "started Orin Swift Cellars with two tons of purchased Zinfandel grapes and as my wife likes to say, with one pair of shoes."
He's since produced quality wines, including the 2005 vintage of "The Prisoner.
Wine Reviews 2011 |, 1 Dec 2011 [cached]
This is the inaugural release of this Petite Sirah based wine from Dave Phinney, the winemaker behind "The Prisoner" and "Mercury Head" at Orin Swift, and it is sure to be a huge hit. This blend is about 50% Petite Sirah, 30% Grenache and 20% Syrah, kind of a kinky California meets Chateauneuf style wine with huge fruit and richness. This wild blend is the big brother to the critically acclaimed "Abstract" that Phinney released in the late fall and that scored 92 in Wine Spectator, though that wine was a touch lighter and had much more Grenache.

Stanton Vineyards - Dave Phinney, Winemaker
Dave Phinney, winemaker As a critic from Groezinger Wine Merchants aptly described, "Doug Stanton, vine guy, and David Phinney, wine guy, appear to have a great thing going here.
Ever since we first introduced you to Doug back in '99, and Dave back in '00, they've been two of our most popular and reliable suppliers of croed pleasing alcoholic beverages.
When it came time to select a new winemaker starting with the 2002 vintage, by resounding recommendations, Doug Stanton looked no further than wine industry "rising star" Dave Phinney of Orin Swift fame.
While an aspiring attorney in college, Phinney traveled to Italy and was so inspired by the vineyards, the wines, and the artistry of the process, that he decided his dream was to be a winemaker instead. Phinney got his start by working harvests at Robert Mondavi and Opus One. To continue his search for knowledge, Phinney went to work at Whitehall Lane where he trained under winemaker Dean Sylvester. Phinney has since honed and applied his unique skills and understanding of how to nurture the most complex, aromatic, and full bodied wines to his own label, Orin Swift, which include such critically acclaimed, cult wines as The Prisoner, Mercury Head, and most recently, Papillon.
As Stanton Vineyards owner attests, "The strength of our wines comes through our vineyard ownership and farming techniques coupled perfectly with the strength of Dave Phinney's winemaking talents."
