Welcome to Swift Wines e-cellar door
Swift Wines are new generation classics — mindfully grown & mindfully made to inspire conversation & connection. We make vibrant, expressive, thought-provoking wines that make life more fun.
Someone once described Swift as ‘serious wines for not-so-serious people’ — and we reckon that’s about bang on.
All about minimal intervention
Our mindful growing approach means our wines are a true representation of where they’ve come from. Capturing this unique sense of place & vintage means doing things by taste, feel and intuition, and being present at every stage of the journey. We know it sounds a little ‘woo’, but honouring the land and following the grapes' cues hasn’t failed us yet.
NZ is known for its sauvs, but we prefer the experimental varieties that let us flex our creativity. Inspired by wines we’ve experienced on our travels (as well as wines shared with friends over the years - we love to entertain), we use a mix of old world techniques & modern innovation to create contemporary classics that have a distinct energy. One that dances on the palette…and makes you want to dance too!
True to our values
Creating a sense of connection, community & celebration is a big part of our ethos — it’s why people love wine in the first place. A good vino has the power to bring us together to talk, share stories, make memories and take a moment to enjoy this hectic thing we call life. Every day is a celebration of something, so let’s bring out the good wine.
Lauren is such an inspiration and her wines are a reflection of her and her passion and love for wines. They're delicious, thoughtful, dangerously drinkable and thought provoking. No boring wines (or boring wine labels) here! We love everything she makes and are excited to see what each new vintage brings. Can't recommend Swift Wines highly enough.
Delicious wines from a super talented winemaker. Swift Wines are beautiful, inside and out. Love love love the labels and that each wine reflects Lauren's passion for trying different winemaking styles, for making wines that speak of a time and a place and for simply making a delicious drink. Lauren, Henry & baby Finn make such an awesome team and it's so exciting to watch their brand grow year on year.
Came for the whole bunch Syrah, stayed for the juicy juicy light reds (which are perfect lightly chilled)! Lauren & Henry's wines are simply delicious, enough said. Great wines from great people.
