Swirl is a Northern California-based full-service wine brokerage, distributor and import firm representing some of the great wine estates from around the world.
Founded by Bay Area natives, Lawrence Boone and Master Sommelier, Sara Floyd, Swirl began in 2003 with a handful of winery clients and a single goal: to discover and promote great wines made by great people.
From the beginning, we’ve partnered with terroir-driven, typically smaller, family-owned wineries who combine both technical excellence and a deep respect for their land and vineyards. The resulting wines are as diverse as their winemakers, but all make you take notice, and continue a decades long pursuit for pure expressions of a certain place and personality.
A common thread between all the producers we work with is their undeniable talent at capturing the essence of their site in the bottle, minimal intervention theories, and their deep knowledge of grape growing and winemaking.
We continue to work with many of those same great families who believed in us nearly 20 years ago, and have been fortunate to expand our portfolio with a diverse collection of exceptional family-owned properties from California, Oregon and Washington, as well as imports from France, Greece, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Germany, Austria, New Zealand and Argentina.
