Olivier is the founder of O Chateau. He is a sommelier and a bit of a nutcase. On top of his activities with O Chateau, Olivier is also a wine consultant for fancy pantsy Hotel de Crillon. In October 2009, Wall Street Journal referred to “Taste-master” Olivier Magny which almost made “Taste-master” Olivier Magny’s mom stop asking him when he was going to get a real job. Olivier’s side occupations include writing (his first book Dessine-moi un Parisien and Stuff Parisians Like received much press acclaim) .
He is also wrapping up his next book about terroir. And working on developing a TV series about wine. (read more…)
Nicolas and Olivier have been friends for many years. They played rugby together at university. Nicolas is originally from the Languedoc. He holds a Master of Sciences from ENSAM and an MBA from ESSEC. Nicolas joined O Chateau in 2006 to turn Olivier’s weird idea into the real company that O Chateau has become today.
Nicolas is the man behind Ô Chateau’s new venue and beautiful wine bar. He manages operations and business development.
Nicolas is the proud father of two baby girls – Manon and Lola.
