The Salon Tasting with Rosemary is one of the best if not the best tasting experience in the Valley. The Salon Tasting experience is by appointment only and $60 a person if you are not a wine club member and it is well worth it....More

She was impressively knowledgable, but also sweet, personable and unpretentious! The wine tastings were paired with small exquisite bites. We have experienced tastings...More

We booked the whole salon and were treated to many of Swanson's excellent wines plus delicious appetizer bites too. The price was on the higher side for the valley but the experience was worth it. Very pleasant staff and delicious tastings.
