Domaine Antoine Olivier
Founded at the end of the sixties, Domaine Olivier originates in the few vineyards left by Antoine Chevalier Moreau.
By purchasing plots and new plantations, the estate first stretched out in Santenay then on Savigny-les-Beaune, Pommard and Nuits-Saint-Georges. During the development of their activity, the Oliviers endeavored to exploit old soils, historically renowned for the production of Santenay white wines. These soils, abandoned for almost a century for some, have allowed the production of wines which are now renowned among white Burgundy wines.
Thanks to this specificity, Domaine Olivier is the main Santenay white wine grower.
No chemical weeding, ploughing, biological control, yield control and manual grape picking in order to obtain the soundest and ripest grapes which can fully express the characteristics of their soils.
Systematic and manual sorting of grapes, long traditional wine-making process, maturing of wine are managed in the respect of each terroir’s specificities, favoring the expression of finesse and elegance of Pinot Noir and of Chardonnay which are unique grape varieties on the estate.
For a few years now, Antoine and Rachel Olivier have been managing all of the activities of the Domaine with one aim: combining modernity and respect of Burgundian soils with the hope that you will enjoy tasting our wines as much as we enjoyed making them.
