The director and biodynamics

Grillette Domaine de Cressier/NE has built an excellent reputation as "les Horlogers du Vin" and has been dedicated to "crus parcellaires" for years. The trained oenologist Annie Rossi has a feeling for the terroir. She knows the soils, which vary from plot to plot, and carefully selects the grape varieties and is fully committed to biodynamic viticulture. A clear message towards sustainability.

On 20 hectares, the young Frenchwoman vinifies a wide range of diverse wines that clearly show their origins. She vinifies wines of origin, rich in finesse, honest growths of seductive elegance. She dares to experiment and allows the rebellious spirit inherent in Grillette winemakers to live on. It is a journey into a fascinating world, the rediscovery of Swiss wine!

The revolucionary and the added value era

The owner and CEO of Cattin & Cie SA from Les Breuleux/JU will let you look into the traditional craft of mechanical watchmaking at this event. Representing the 6th generation, Guy Albert Cattin owns the oldest uninterrupted family-run watch manufacture in Switzerland. He has led the family business, founded in 1858, and its niche brand CATOREX® into an era of return to the original values of Swiss watchmaking history.

With his "FairProfit©" philosophy, he takes a revolutionary stand against the high-margin luxury watch industry and consistently focuses on the added value of the watch buyer. With his automatic watch collection, he delivers on his promise: first-class mechanical quality timepieces at uniquely fair prices and transparency of the value chain. His vision: 100% Swiss Made in perfection.
