Michel and Baptiste Roset

It’s right in the heart of Bourdigny that we meet Baptiste Roset and his vineyards, all located in this charming village. Chasselas, Gamay, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Gris and Blanc flourish on the young winemaker’s eleven-hectare family estate. His father, Michel Roset, has always been a winemaker at La Cave de Genève and owns the land. Baptiste is the operator.

After graduating from the Lullier School of Horticulture, Baptiste went on a seven-month work placement in Germany, then studied at the Changins engineering school while working with his father. He then spent four years working in the canton of Neuchâtel, before finally returning to the family estate.

Would you like another dose of good humour?

After spending a few moments with our winemaker, you quickly realise that he’s interested in a whole host of things! As well as being passionate about his job, Baptiste is a bookworm, plays unihockey and, above all, loves to cook good food and enjoy it with a glass of wine. That goes hand in hand…

As we talk, we realise that a wind of good humour is blowing through Bourdigny. You’ll probably notice it when you meet him in his vineyards: Baptiste is smiling and ultra-positive by nature. He describes himself as a hard worker but also confides in us, laughing of course, that he sometimes has a tendency to spread himself too thin.

In his view, you need a number of character traits to be a good winemaker. Calm, a love of vines and wine, patience, courage and stubbornness are all part of it. For him, it’s important to never give up and to always give your all, because it’s not an easy job every day.

Harvest time…

What he loves about his job is the autumn grape harvest. This represents the culmination of all the year’s work and is a source of great pride for our winemaker. But of course, he particularly enjoys tasting the wines as an accompaniment to an aperitif or a good summer barbecue, especially the Chasselas and Gamay Vieilles Vignes.

The next generation is assured!

Baptiste tells us at the end of the interview that he is delighted to see all the young people who are taking over the profession. For him, this represents a real breath of fresh air, with new winemakers who want to continue to invest in La Cave de Genève, as previous generations have done!
