Joseph Swan Vineyards
Description

Our charming tasting room, also our barrel room, is full of winery atmosphere and a great place to visit if you’re in the area. We have a wonderful tasting bar and Rod and Lynn are often behind the counter ready to talk about our wines.

The winery was named by Joe Swan when he founded it thirty years ago. Joe came to winemaking from an unlikely background. He grew up the son of teetotaler parents (his mother was in the Women’s Christian Temperance Union) in the farm country of North Dakota. He was an avid reader (there not being a whole lot else to do), and he happened to read about wine. Not lacking for imagination but definitely lacking for grapes, he nonetheless set out to make wine. Using his mother’s ringer washing machine, he squeezed the juice from some rhubarb from the garden, and, in a crock he had secreted in the attic, proceeded to produce his first “wine”.
