Pascal Rossignol | Litfest A Food and Drinks Literacy Festival at Ballymaloe

Pascal Rossignol was born and grew up in Gevrey-Chambertin, Burgundy.

Pascal worked with Burgundy wine producer and first cousin Joseph Roty before embarking in a career in the Restaurant and Hotel industry. In 1999, he opened Le Caveau in Kilkenny with his wife Geraldine. Pascal focus is on sourcing wines true to their origins, from small artisan winegrowers. For the past nine years, Pascal is a guest wine lecturer at Ballymaloe Cookery School teaching the students about organic, biodynamic and natural wines, during the 12-week Certificate course.

“Nobody in Ireland takes natural wine more seriously than the urbane Pascal Rossignol of Le Caveau in Kilkenny. And he doesn’t adopt a messianic approach to them either; he stocks them because he thinks they are good wines – and they are"
