  • Dave Phinney’s first grape-planting took place in Arizona, while a student at U of A. Next, he worked a harvest at Robert Mondavi. Shortly thereafter he purchased two tons of Zin and started Orin Swift. Next came The Prisoner (sold off in 2009.) No wine has gone from cult to bestseller in "swifter" fashion. Papillon is the team's homage to Bordeaux, by way of Napa. A bold and vibrant butterfly.
