The vision behind every Olema wine is to capture one vibrant place inside a delicious bottle. With the same skilled winemaking team that crafts Amici Cellars’ wines at the helm — Napa Valley legend Tony Biagi and rising star Jesse Fox — the goal is to bring the best possible fruit to the cellar, because the more the vines are in balance, the better the fruit, and the better the fruit, the easier it is to make great wine. From when the grapes arrive at the winery to when the wine is bottled, the Olema team ensures that its wines are both true to their classic varietal characteristics and growing regions.
The team at Olema crafts beautiful bottles for every occasion — delicious reds, whites, Provençal rosé and sparkling wines that cost no more than $25. A subscription club is also available to ensure your wine supply never runs dry. Cheers to high-scoring wines that turn every day into a celebration!
