About Olivier magny

Mr. Wine Tasting

I was born and raised in Paris. After graduating from a French Grande École, I decided to turn away from desk jobs and change my life by choosing to work in wine. I joined the wine team of fancy pantsy Hotel de Crillon and at the age of 23 I founded Ô Chateau. Almost a decade later, O Chateau has become a landmark in Paris for all wine lovers.

On top of my activities with O Chateau, I am also a best-selling author, a passionate teacher, I host a TV host and I blog. More importantly, I'm also a very lucky husband.






I believe in measuring achievements not only in numbers but also in stories and memories. Here are some of the ones I've gleaned along the way.



Since I started it, O Chateau has grown to become France's #1 WIne School and Paris largest wine bar. Over the years, we have taught wine to over 100,000 students from all over the world.



My first book started as blog and ended up becoming an International best-seller published in several langages.



I started doing wine videos online. Soon enough, this strange idea was turned into a TV show that now airs in France, Australia, Hungary India, etc.



I have had the pleasure to share my expertise with students of Duke University, the University of Melbourne, INSEAD, Sciences-Po, ESSEC, Elon university, etc.


World record

With O Chateau, we hold the world record of the highest wine tasting session in the world: 36,000ft, somewhere between Paris and Barcelona.


I can't say how blessed I feel and how enthusiastic I am about continuing to share my passions with you.
