Olivier is an adept of Biodynamic farming and as little intervention during the wine-making. From the ground to the bottle, Olivier Pithon is focused on one simple rule: making wines the most naturally possible and in the respect of the environment. Which means that not only without any chemicals but also with the environmental cycle as natural as possible, including the use of cows, bees and sowing.
