Olivier Rivière is a French oenologist that studied in Bordeaux and has been living in La Rioja for some years now. He worked for 2 years with Telmo Rodríguez, one of the most internationally renown Spanish oenologists, with whom Rivière discovered La Rioja land and wines. Soon he saw that there were vast lands, vines and areas of La Rioja and Navarra yet to be discovered, and started his own wine-making project.

He does not have neither his own winery nor his own vineyars, which is usual in France but not in La Rioja, and bought his grapes in La Rioja Alavesa and Baja. Nowadays Oliviere Rivière is one of the leading wine producers of La Rioja.

Since 2015 he has been part of Rioja 'n' Roll, a  alternative movement fromed by a group of independent young producers that unite to advocate for the wine heritage of La Rioja through town wines, applying their own criteria.
