Olivier Pithon is orginally from a wine making family from Anjou in the Loire and after spending some time in Bordeaux, decided to settle in Calce in 2000 after being introduced to Gerard Gauby by his brother, Jo, a wine maker from Layon. The vines are grown strictly according to biodynamic principles and they are superb – elegant, complex reds; delicate, floral whites. Olivier has one main driving force for his work. “I’ve had only one desire: to give everything to my vines so that then they give it back in their grapes and in my wine. You must be proud and put your guts, your sweat, your love, your desires, your joy and your dreams into your wine.” This is the spirit along with the unique terroir of Domaine Olivier Pithon that give his wines their quality and uniqueness. The Soil is Schist, Marl, Calcerous-Clay; White Grape Varieties: Macabeu, Grey and White Grenache; Red Grape Varieties: Carignan, Black Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvedre. The climate is Mediterranean, with hot dry summers, rainy winters, and moderate springs and autumns. With influence from the Tramontane wind, the local, gentler version of the Mistral blows from the north-west. It is dry, cold and often violent, carrying air from polar regions. In summer it brings clear blue skies and relief from the heat. In winter it just brings cold air. Certified Organic by AB in 2002 and certified biodynamic by Biodyvin in 2010, Olivier is passionate about respect for the land. His commitment to the living farm is evident in everything he does in the vineyard and in the cellar.
