Olsen Wines & Vin 888 Pty Ltd is a family business concern of Angie Joson-Olsen and Glenn Olsen.
Initially starting in wine retailing, the Olsen Wines label was established in 1993 and has since then received awards at major shows entered. Glenn Olsen is the chief winemaker and imparts his passion for winemaking in producing quality styles of wines.
They are currently in the design phase of a new production facility at the Yarra Glen vineyard. This facility will allow all operations to be centralised; giving rise to considerable cost savings and allowing for growth in both winemaking services and export activities. This facility will house the production, bottling and storage and cellar door sales. Olsen Wines envisage that this project will take three years including town planning and EPA approval. A part of this long term plan is the development of the Yarra Valley property for tourism, restoring it to its former glory, as it was once an accommodation facility.
Most of the wines come either from grapes grown on the Murray River in Northeast Victoria, or from the Yarra Valley. They export to the US, Canada, Japan, China and Hong Kong.
It's Glenn's responsiveness to consumer requests that led him down the path of making preservative free wines, and the success of his initial vintages has resulted in an expanded range. Olsen wines are the makers of many of our Organic Wine Selection NAP cleanskin range.
