SWICK

NEWBERG, Oregon

Oregon native and darling of the natural wine scene Joe Swick has been perfecting his one man show for a few years now.  Many American producers talk about making their wine affordable, Joe actually achieves it.  What’s more, his wines are captivating to nerds and noobs alike!  Although his winery is located not far from Portland, Joe purchases fruit from both Washington and Oregon.  With 2018’s harvest Joe has expanded his one man show to 6,000 cases with plans to actually hire some help and increase his production even more in years to come.
