The Once-in-a-Lifetime Swiss Estate Includes a Winery & Vineyard
Described as “a magical place” in the heart of the La Côte region of Switzerland, Château Le Rosey is set for sale in October, courtesy of Concierge Auctions, the world’s leading luxury real estate online auction platform.
The once-in-a-lifetime opportunity will appeal to wine connoisseurs and entrepreneurs eager for a property that includes a massive estate, vineyard, and winery. Château Le Rosey is scheduled for online auction October 7-12 and will sell with no reserve to the highest bidder. It is listed for CHF 35 million ($37.7 million).
The property is in the heart of the Lake Léman region and was built at the start of the 13th century. The estate has been completely restored with modern amenities while retaining its historical charm while the winery has produced award-winning varietals.
The scale is grand when it comes to Château Le Rosey. There is dining and reception space for 60 in the dining room, and outdoor social space for several hundred guests. The dining room features a Gothic fireplace and antique terracotta floors.
The Concierge Auctions winery estate includes a private spa with a swimming pool and Turkish bath. The cellar is paved in pebbles, featuring a spacious living room ideal for a tasting from some of the vineyard’s wines or a nightcap.
World-Class Winery Awaits
The estate features 11 grape varieties harvested by hand, producing 15 single-varietal wines. The estate’s winery and vineyard operate using strict adherence to environmentally friendly practices, which have earned it certifications from Bio-Inspecta (organic) and Demeter (biodynamic farming). In 2018, three of its varietals, garanoir, garanoir barrique, and gamaret barrique earned the highly sought-after 1er Grand Cru designation.
The vineyard features some vines which are 40 years old and is planted at a density of 6,000 vines per hectare in clay-limestone soil, a mix of sandy and gravelly material that is light to medium-light in color. The vineyard rests on a gentle slope of 430-470 meters above sea level.
The complete wine-making process is done at the on-site winery, providing the owners with control over processes and techniques. Stainless steel tanks allow for precise temperature control and optimal aroma and color extraction. French oak barrels are lightly toasted, allowing for the wine to age gracefully.
The property is halfway between Geneva and Lausanne and overlooks the village of Bursins. The property stretches toward the wooded Jura foothills and includes panoramic views of one of the largest lakes in Western Europe, the Alps, and Mont Blanc. Geneva, with its rich history, is just 30 minutes away and features a vibrant modern city with cultural opportunities, dining, and shopping.
The region itself is well known for its winemaking and quality of life and is a perfect spot for families of all stages. There are international schools, golf clubs and skiing nearby.
