Winemaker: Joe Swick

Joe Swick is a 5th generation Oregonian winemaker who is somewhat of a
natural wine pioneer in the Pacific Northwest. After traveling and
working in wine all over, he returned to Oregon to start his own label
in 2013. Like many young natural winemakers, he doesn’t own any
vineyards but sources grapes from organic or biodynamic vineyards in
the Willamette and Columbia Valleys of Oregon and Washington.  He
makes a bunch of different bottles, all in small quantities, just a
barrel or two of each.  He plays both sides, making beautiful, natural
versions of the classics, as well as experimenting with co-ferments,
Solera-style, unusual fermenting and aging vessels -- he's all over
the place, but the results are always squeaky clean and delicious.

This rosé falls somewhere in between classic and wild, but no one
would call it weird.  You get beautiful red berry fruit, with just the
slightest hint of funk and a savory, herbal undertone. It is
especially food-friendly -- pair it with anything you would a Pinot
when it gets too hot for red -- or when your food is too spicy for
red.  Taco night!
