As you walk through the doors of our winery and are greeted by the ‘Working Girls’ of Olympic Cellars, it’s obvious the personality of the women behind the winery and our best known wine brand, Working Girl Wines, drive a non-traditional persona of contrasts not only in the décor and events at the winery but also in our wines.
Beginning with an enormous, century-old barn (the winery’s home), the weathered old cedar is adorned with massive barrel-shaped copper doors you might expect to see in a monastery. Out front, a vineyard angel welcomes you... with her wine barrel-body adorned in a grass skirt and wearing pink rubber boots! The barn smiles at night through stained-glass copulas that tower above the landscape. And one of the most popular winery photo op’s is none other than -- the women’s bathroom (really, words can’t do it justice!).
This year, our 30th anniversary, we will pour what may be the best wine that has ever come out of our cellar, a 2007 Cabernet blend. It’s dedicated to our founder, Gene Neuharth. And yes, it’ll be poured right next to a small batch of locally-grown Muller-Thurgau infused with Peninsula culinary lavender. And then we’ll toast it all, of course... with a cold glass of Sparkling Twilight!
