About this author

At age 23, native Parisian Olivier Magny turned his back from the life his parents expected him to maintain to follow his true passion: wine.

One decade later, Olivier's unique approach to wine (French journalists like to refer to Olivier as "The Jamie Oliver of Wine") has turned his little company - O Chateau - into France's #1 wine tasting school & wine bar.

On top of being an international best-selling author and an award-winning sommelier, Olivier is also a guest speaker for Duke University, Melbourne University or Sciences Po.

But if you meet him, or are fortunate enough to read his books, what you'll discover is a incredibly talented young man with a unique voice, genuine passion and most of all... a wonderful sense of humor.

“We need to get acquainted with mediocrity to notice greatness.”
Olivier Magny, Into Wine: An Invitation to Pleasure

“Without patience and interest, one will only have access to immediate pleasures—which are good, but much lower in quality than the pleasures gained over time.”
Olivier Magny, Into Wine: An Invitation to Pleasure

“Studying wine taught me that there was a very big difference between soil and dirt: dirt is to soul what zombies are to humans. Soil is full of life, while dirt is devoid of it.”
