Join In On The Fun!
We are currently recruiting our team of volunteers for this year's upcoming wine festivals. At most festivals, volunteers get free admission, complimentary bottle(s) of wine from The Winery, a souvenir wine glass, and a chance to meet new people while having a FUN time pouring for us. We're the winery that "makes good wine fun" and we're dedicated to ensuring our volunteers have an incredible time at every festival.
If you would like to join the festival team or would like more information on what being a volunteer means please email Caroline Umosella at Caroline@TheWineryAtOlney.com. Click here to see a complete schedule of our 2015 wine festivals.

The Winery at Olney introduces the unique concept of bring a working winery to an urban, retail setting. All of our wide variety of wines are fermented on-site at our location in the Fair Hill Shopping Center in Olney, where our customers can enjoy them at our signature tasting bar, by the glass in one of our cool seating areas, or purchase them to go. If there is one that you find to be exceptionally delicious, we can help you make your own custom batch of wine (28-30 bottles) in our U-Vint area. Our full-time graphic artist will even work with you to craft your own personalized label! Read More...
