Winemaker Jim Olsen (2014-09-01) posted Mon Sep 1 13:10:07 2014

Inverness winemaker Jim Olsen shares with us his many decades of winemaking experience and the BIG news about Manton Valley (near Mt. Lassen) becoming an AVA (American Viticulture Area) and a bottle of his beautiful new 2013 Chardonnay he has produced from 100% Manton Valley Chard. Jim's years of experience tinkering with Chardonnay in big wineries like La Crema bring a balance and elegance to Chardonnay that is a welcome evolution. You probably never heard of Manton Valley because the US government only JUST recognized it as one of America's great viticulture areas and Jim shares some of the magic of this new AVA and winemaking in general.

Jim also shares with us the innovative winemaker's dream come true - Naked Wines. The online wine retailer founded by former Virgin Group Ltd. executive Rowan Gormley approached Jim who is one of the first winemakers to join this group. This new model of doing business is revolutionizing winemaking!
