Founder & Vintner
Jenny Heim is a 1st generation wine producer and the Founder and Vintner of Olet’te Vineyards and Tribe and Arrow Napa Valley. After graduating Cal Poly San Luis Obispo with a B.S. in Wine Business & Viticulture, followed by a master’s degree in Global Wine Marketing, she settled in Napa Valley.
In the 2011 Jenny co-founded Olet’te Vineyards with a dream to produce wines from the most prestigious single vineyards in the New World. Armed with a degree in Viticulture and a love for the land, the Olet’te revolution began!
Hailing form some of the most sought-after vineyards in Northern California with a focus on small lots, sustainably farmed vineyards and an elegance only achieved from the highest quality of grapes, the Olet’te and Tribe & Arrow brands have secured their place in cult wine production with mentions everywhere from Wine Spectator to the most revered wine critics and sommeliers across the Nation. The winery is in the heart of Napa Valley in St. Helena California and wines are tasted by appointment at the winery, vineyard, or downtown tasting room.
Jenny’s wines have been awarded “Best of Year” in Wine Enthusiast two years in a row and published in The Wine Enthusiast Magazine in 2021 and most recently the November 2022 issue. The Olet’te Blanc de Blancs sparkling was picked for the 2020 Oscars and the Olet’te Reserve Sparkling Brut was listed as #5 in the "Top 100 Best Buys" in the World.
Today the brand has grown to include Tribe and Arrow Napa Valley which includes two single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon bottlings that hail from the Diamond Mountain and Oak Knoll districts in Napa Valley.
Jenny is busy between the winery, tasting room, vineyards and managing her BEST vintages yet, her two children Nora & J.J. Jenny describes juggling motherhood and the pursuit of her dreams in the wine business as a wild, beautiful, often chaotic journey but by FAR the greatest gift of all.
