Hollie Swanson assumed ownership of the Greenbank Farm Wine Shop in the Fall 2015. Prior to becoming a wine shop proprietor, Hollie followed a broad range of careers. She studied aviation, and then atmosphere science at the University of Washington, flew skydivers at multiple local Seattle-area drop zones, worked in test & validation for Boeing, and was a professional firefighter for the City of Kent.
Historically, the wine shop has been a staple of the Greenbank Farm since the days of Chateau Ste. Michelle’s ownership of the farm. Since the Port of Coupeville took over ownership of the farm 18 years ago, the farm and the wine shop have been run by the Greenbank Farm Management Group. Under the new ownership, the Greenbank Farm Wine Shop is offering a broad variety of wines and ciders.
Current beverage items on the shelves include wines from local wineries, fruit wines, dessert wines, hard ciders, wines made from organic and biodynamically grown grapes.
The shop also has a lovely selection of gift items including jewelry and the Pandemonium line of hats, clothing, handbags and scarves.
