Olsen Private Vineyards is a family owned and run winery in the Paarl region. Its principle varieties include Pinotage, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc. The owner is Dr Greg Olsen, entrepreneur-physicist and third civilian to go to the International Space Station in 2005, along with his daughters Kimberly and Krista. Winemaking occurs on a historical piece of land in this region, as the land was once home to hundreds of Italian POW's in 1945 who were instrumental in the construction of the Du Toitskloof pass.
