Ogier was a Dane. He was one of those eccentric men, a European ahead of his time, who went off to fight with Charlemagne’s soldiers in the Basque country. On his way back home he stopped off in the Massif Central. His stay turned out to be permanent, and the Ogier name spread throughout the Rhone valley. Antoine Ogier, a distant descendant of Ogier the Dane, started his trading business in 1859. Among the traits he shares with his illustrious ancestor are his swagger and renown. Since then, Ogier shines from châteauneuf-du-pape to make wines of excellence and share the lifestyle of Rhône valley.
