Chai Saint Olive is Lyon’s first urban winemaking winery and is located at the heart of the 6th district of the city.
Urban winemaker, Chai Saint Olive is an urban winery that houses precision temperature controlled tanks and state-of-the-art winemaking facilities. From the reception of freshly pressed grape juice (also called must) to bottling, through ageing barrels, we produce hand-crafted wines on site.
All our wines are made with 100% local grape varieties (Chardonnay, Viognier, Syrah and Gamay). They are all carefully selected from 4 estates located less than 60 kilometers away from our Chai Saint Olive.
Our tasting room offers also an event space dedicated to company’s meetings, team-building events, private parties, press conferences…
Driven by the same passion for wine, we created our own wine production in 2014 with our brand name – SAINT OLIVE FRERES®.
Matured and bottled at our partner winemakers, our wines are mainly distributed to private customers, restaurants and wine shops in Lyon and its region. Based on this experience and through fortunate meetings along the way, we wanted to bring wine production to the city.
So we worked on this pioneer project and developed a unique concept in Lyon, that of a urban winemaking in our hometown.
After two and a half years of work, Chai Saint Olive is born and we are happy to welcome you to our premises!
