A Native american legend...
One day a terrible fire broke out in a forest. Frightened, all the animals fled their homes, feeling helpless, except for one little hummingbird. The hummingbird swooped into the stream for a few drops of water and went back to the forest to put out the fire. Then it went back to the stream again, again, again and again.
All the other animals watched in disbelief: "Your wings will burn, your beak is too small, and one drop at a time you'll never put out the fire!"
The hummingbird, without skipping a beat, looked back and said, "I am doing what I can."
Born in the north of France at the end of the 80s, Olivier first studied biology, but quickly migrated to a two-year program in Viticulture and Enology in Champagne. After several internships in Champagne and Bordeaux, he decides to top off his education with a third year in Wine Sales at the engineering school of Montpellier, which culminates with an internship in Chateauneuf-du-Pape.
After working for several wineries around the country as a cellar-master, Olivier decides to take some time to work and visit wineries abroad to understand winemaking on a more global scale. After his travels to California, South and West Australia, and both islands in New Zealand, he heads back to France with the objective of farming his own land and producing his own bottles.
Olivier is now the proud owner of 10 hectars of vineyards in the Ventoux.
