Winemaker, Alta Napa Valley

Winemaker, Fred Oliai

I have extensive experience in fermentation sciences. Growing up in Kentucky and working in an R&D setting at two major distilleries, I learned a lot about fermentation and barrel science. I later worked in the Brewing industry in Colorado and attended graduate school in Molecular biology. I moved to the Bay Area in 1997 to start a career in software technology. In 2008, along with two other partners, I purchased a 9 acre vineyard in the Atlas Peak district of the Napa Valley. I am fortunate to have forged a long term working relationship with my next door neighbor, John Kongsgaard and his winery. Our vineyard has been supplying Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes to Kongsgaard since 2009. I've learned quite a bit working with Kongsgaard and he has greatly influenced my winemaking style.

Country born: Iran

Education: B.A. Biology with minor in Chemistry
Graduate Studies in Molecular Biology
UC Davis extension studies in Enology and Viticulture
UC Berkeley extension studies in Computer Science.

Years in the wine industry: 6 years

Winemaking Philosophy:
Great wines are made in the vineyard and are meant to be paired and enjoyed with food. I like to craft wines that are approachable now, but also have good aging potential. A balance of verital characteristics and oak is what I try to achieve with my wines. I try to avoid using additives and do not filter red wines.
