Swope Family Merlot
92 PTS, WINE ENTHUSIAST
The Swope family were sharecroppers from southern Missouri. While dirt poor, they were rich with love of family. During the height of the Dust Bowl era their father, James Thomas Swope, with his daughters, a son and three grand children, moved to northern California. Settling in Suisun Valley, they started as day laborers picking fruit and working the fields. With hard work they carved out a place they could call home – Fairfield, California and Mankas Corner. James, and one of his grand daughters, were laid to rest at the Rockville Cemetery. Today, four grand children and there families still live in the area. This brand is a tribute to them.
