Olsen Vineyard

The Olsen Family has been farming grapes in the Yakima Valley since 1990. This is a high elevation, cool site that sits at an elevation of 880 feet - 1,350 feet. The cooler climate offers a natural acidity that we seek in our finished wines and serves as the backbone of our Chardonnay program.
