ONX (pronounced “onyx”) believes in freedom, creative expression and exploration. A combination of time-honored winemaking traditions and a penchant for adventure result in unique blends that are as pleasing to the palate as they are intriguing to the intellect. The Olson Family has been committed to farming and real estate for over a century. With ONX Estate Winery, the family continues its farming activities much the same way their Scandinavian grandparents did more than 100 years ago.
Unhindered by convention, the ONX Winemaking Team strives to create balanced wines that reflect both the place the grapes were grown and the vintage in which they were born. From rule breaking to blind blending, each vintage of ONX Wines is completely different, yet delightfully cohesive. There is a French term, elevage, which is applied to wine and it translates to “the educating or upbringing” of wine like parents do with their children. ONX likes to extend that notion into the vineyard and believes that the vines can be trained into producing the best possible fruit for wine production.
