Orin Swift Wine Dinner; edgy look and taste!

January 22, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 9:30 pm


A 6-Course Culinary Expedition featuring Orin Swift Cellars Wines

About Dave Phinney – Orin Swift Cellars
Vintner Dave Phinney of Orin Swift Cellars is just a t-shirt and jeans kind of guy. But beneath the casual exterior is a visually creative person whose aesthetic was shaped as a child by his parents, two professors who lived in different cities around the world, exposing him to a myriad of sights and instilling imagination in him wherever they could. Melding the influences of classic Europe to the exotic Ottoman Empire to the streets of LA, Phinney communicates the message of his wines with a personal nod to the past, with minimum words and maximum impact.
