A discreet and demanding man, Olivier Tricon has built up a team of twenty or so people around him and he enjoys transmitting his knowledge. His wife Valérie, a granddaughter of winegrowers, assists her husband on the estate. Oliver Tricon has a presence in various international markets, and travels the world marketing his wines. He’s got a weak spot for the land of the rising sun, and exports his wine throughout the world – to Russia, Germany, Scandinavia, Japan, China, and so on. On these trips he makes many discoveries and spends time with his customers.
" Raised by farming and wine growing , I worked in various French regions, then as a cellar master on the family estate. In tandem, I worked as a broker, which led quickly to me setting up my own wine merchant’s. In 1998, I bought Domaine de Vauroux, while developing my wine merchant business. Being in the position to work 4km from Chablis meant I didn’t lose my identity and enabled me to see the big picture and thus work in a completely independent manner. Once my wine has been bottled I don’t really have much more to say about it, rather I prefer to let it speak for itself and to share it with you. "
