While we were in France, I was able to meet some really kind friends. Burgundy was no different. While in Puligny Montrachet I met Olivier Leflaive, who befriended me. Olivier and his family are one of the most respected wine families in Burgundy. After speaking about my project with him, he offered me help to get going. Recently, Olivier offered a chance to work with him this harvest at his domaine in Puligny Montrachet in the cellar. I will work with him while starting my own project in nearby Beaune. I can’t wait to get out there and get started. Stay tuned….
As it turned out, I was far too busy with my own winery to help out with Olivier Leflaive. I am quite thankful for the offer that he extended to me.
