Olabisi means limited production, handcrafted wines from one-of-a-kind vineyard sources tended by uncommonly talented farmers. With a miniscule production of under 1,000 cases per year, they’re able to pay attention to each of the wines as individual expressions of the truly incredible vineyards from which they’re sourced.
Ted Osborne and his wife Kim started making wines under the Olabisi label back in 2002. At the time, Ted was associate winemaker for Storybook Mountain in Napa Valley. Over the previous seven years he had been practicing his chops at various wineries in Napa, Australia, South Africa, and Bordeaux. But with Olabisi, he could finally make the wines he wanted to make. They could be as creative and unorthodox as they saw fit, all in the pursuit of turning beautiful fruit into beautiful wine.
