Welcome to Olympic Cellars Winery!
Olympic Cellars specializes in small batches of distinctive, high quality wines. Their grapes come from 5 of the top 10 rated vineyards in Eastern Washington. The winery's talented vintner, Virginie Bourgue, owner of Lullaby Winery in Port Townsend, crafts wines with a mixture of "science, passion, and pure artistry." Her wines have won international awards.
The wine is excellent, and there is also the magical ambience of the winery itself. Olympic Cellars Winery is housed in a beautiful 120+ year old barn (see photos), boasts a hundred-year-old hand fashioned tasting bar, and an artisan vineyard onsite. The large copper doors are reminiscent of large old wine barrels.
If you visit the winery at harvest time, usually between August and October, you might be lucky enough to hear the 100-year-old bell that rings in the harvesting of the small vineyard on the property.
Very Brief History of Olympic Cellars Winery: One of the early winemakers in Washington State was Gene Neuharth, who opened Neuharth Winery in 1979 in an old dairy barn in Sequim, Washington. After his passing, Neuharth Winery operations were slowly and lovingly reshaped and rebranded. Now called Olympic Cellars, it is located in the current old heritage barn which is a stone's throw from Highway 101, O'Brien Road, and Old Olympic Highway in the Agnew area of Port Angeles, WA.
Its management is now in the hands of three enterpreneurial "working girls," Molly, Lisa, and Kathy, who are the inspiration for Olympic Cellars' Working Girls brand.
Olympic Cellars Winery hosts and are apart of several events over the course of the year including their very own International Women's Day celebration and are apart of both the Olympic Peninsula's Lavender Festival and Dungeness Crab Festival, and much more.
