Hosted By Tanya Bjornsson

Winemaker and Owner of Esja Wines

Ejsa Self Describing Story

“Esja Wines is a winery based in Washington, founded by Tanya Bjornsson, a first-generation American born to Icelandic immigrants.

The name “Esja” comes from a mountain range situated ten kilometers north of Iceland’s capital, Reykjavik.

Tanya found her focus in the wine industry in 2015. She became interested in wine as a teenager, when her brother-in-law,

who was studying to be a sommelier, let her try wines he was tasting. After graduating with a degree in French, she moved to Portland,

Oregon, intending to enter the restaurant industry. However, she ended up being hired as a

harvest intern at Union Wine Company in Tualatin in 2015.

At Esja Wines, they strive to make minimally intervened Washington wine, that is funky, fresh, and fun. The wines have been

well-received, and they are part of a trend of wineries in Washington striving to make lighter-styled, lower-alcohol wines.

The first restaurant Tanya pitched her wines to was the legendary The Herbfarm in Woodinville.”
