The dream of Orin Swift Cellars began while David Phinney was studying in Italy. He started Orin Swift with two tons of purchased grapes and, through fine winemaking, turned these grapes into The Prisoner, the company’s flagship wine. First Republic’s extensive knowledge of the wine industry has been a great match for this extraordinary winemaker.
