Pierre Overnoy

Pierre Overnoy was born in 1937 in the town of Pupillin, in the French department of Jura. A student of Jules Chauvet, a free thinker for sulphite wine, Pierre has become a reference in the field of natural wine development in France. Born by a family of winemakers in 1961, he completely assumes the management of the cellar after an apprenticeship at the Station Oenologique in Beaune. Pierre Overnoy has immediately decided to produce its wines in an absolutely natural way by searching for its typicalness and purity, without giving up the new wine-making solutions that have taken hold in those years such as: clonal selections, chemical diserbs, selected industrial yeasts, sulfite abuse and various additives ,. Pierre's work has started planting numerous plants so that they have a high plant density to force plant roots to descend into the depths of the soil and take nutrients by manually working the soil, removing weeds, and not using substances chemical or sulfur dioxide, but only Bordeaux's disease against disease. In the cellar fermentations are spontaneous only with indigenous yeasts, long refinements on fine lees, and before the bottling Pierre Overnoy wines are neither filtered nor clarified. The hectares of vines are 6 where Chardonnay is grown, and the native Ploussard and Savagnin. In 2001, without children, Pierre transferred his estate to Emmanuel Houillon (his spiritual son). The wines of Pierre Overnoy are simple, pure and of culture.
