O2Y is a collaboration between Olivier Guala, Yves Roy and Yoshi Kuroda. The trio (originating from France and Japan) make wine in Poligny, a small town in Jura with limestone cliffs to the east and south.

Yves and Yoshi met at the Lycée Viticole in Lons le Saunier during their training as winemakers. Yoshi had recently arrived in France with no knowledge of the language but a burning desire to learn more about the natural wines he had tasted in his native Japan, where he worked as a carpenter. Alongside O2Y, Yves now has his own winery called Nøvice and Yoshi works for Emmanuel Houillon at Domaine Overnoy.

Olivier, originally from Jura, has a long-standing passion for wine and cars. His previous career saw him restoring and distributing classic automobiles and in the O2Y cellar the barrels and vats standing alongside vintage cars. As well as driving the project, Olivier brings the grapes from their various locations to the O2Y cave in his old truck.

Finding vines in Jura is a challenge due to both the popularity of the region and the changing climate, and it’s unsurprising that O2Y began by using négoce grapes, meticulously sourced from biodynamic vineyards across Alsace, Savoie, Beaujolais, Burgundy, Jura and (since 2021 when a difficult vintage took their search for top quality grapes further afield) Languedoc-Roussillon.

In 2023 O2Y finally acquired its own small selection of vines: 1.3 ha of Pinot Noir in Arbois, 0.10 ha of Poulsard-Trousseau-Savagnin in Poligny, and 0.30 ha of Savagnin sur Poligny planted in ’22. 

The three take turns overseeing the winemaking process; each making their own wine with their personal touch and decision-making. 

The wines are precise, vibrant and complex, with a distinctive lightness and balance. They express a diversity of terroir, but are all made from a Jura perspective. 

Production size (2023): 10–16,000 bottles per year. 

All wines are 100% additive free, with no sulphur added at any point.
