About us

Family Daniel & Xavier Bovy

Domaine de La Crosettaz, Gilly, A propos

A family-run estate for 4 generations

Spanning over 12 hectares of vines, the Domaine de la Crosettaz,, is located in the commune of Gilly, in the district of Rolle.

Situated at an altitude of 600 meters, it is one of the highest vineyard estates in the region.

The estate has belonged to the Bovy family for over a hundred years and has a long and rich history.

Vineyards overlooking Geneva Lake

The south-facing vines take in a maximum amount of sunshine. In addition, they overlook Lake Geneva, which provides additional brightness and warmth thanks to the reverberation effect.

The vines benefit from light soil that warms up quickly and encourages plant growth. The vineyards are planted on slopes between 15% - 40% and ideal air temperatures, which help to ensure the grapes ripen properly.

The vines are cultivated with respect to nature, using sustainable agriculture.


All Domaine de la Crosettaz wines come from plots of land surrounding the estate.

More than 18 specialties

"My favourite wine? Impossible to choose, they all have their own special character. That's why I like them all.

Some of our wines, which combine several grape varieties, have won numerous medals.

Such as our 'Désir Noir', which won 1st place in the Laurier de Platine Rouge 2022 of the Terravin label. Its fruitiness and round, silky tannins are appreciated by all generations.
