Meet the Producer: Olivier Pichon

A social worker turned winemaker and moving from Lyon to the Languedoc, Olivier acquired vines deep in the Languedoc garrigue from his Friend Thierry Forestier. 2016 saw his first vintage with just one hectare.

Olivier only started winemaking in 2015 having previously working in Lyon as a social worker. A busy family life with his wife and four children means he hasn't had time to go to university; instead he has learned on the job, with help from his friend and fellow vigneron Thierry Forestier. He farms a small one-hectare plot and works organically.

We met Olivier by chance at a small wine fair in the Languedoc last November, where he was showing some friends a few tank samples of his debut vintage. The wine was clean, juicy and bright so we stayed in touch.
