Staff Pick Notes

There aren't too many producers where I will, without having tried them, take home a bottle of any new release or vintage we get. Swick is one of them. Joe Swick spent ten years making his way across the world, working for wineries as far flung as Domaine Serene, Ceretto, Niepoort, and Kosta Browne. He eventually came home to Oregon, where he now makes terroir focused wine where, in his own words, there is "nothing added to the wine and nothing taken away."

It's bottled unfiltered with minimal sulfur. To me, it hits the perfect balance of damp earth, gravel, underbrush to bursting red fruits, violets, and bright acidity.

The largest wine region in Oregon is the Willamette Valley, lying between the cities of Portland and Eugene and home to most of Oregon’s wineries. As it does not have one homogeneous climate, it has been broken up into several different AVAs. In the best of them, the perfect amounts of wind, rain, sun exposure, and altitude combine to give Pinot Noir the warm days and cool nights it needs in order to thrive. Combine that with good drainage and poor soils, and you’ve got the perfect environment...
