Damien Bastian was born in Annemasse, and comes from the world of horticulture. He has many years of experience in vegetable growing and in developing complex vegetable systems in Chad. On his return, he worked in the restaurant business in Geneva and came into real contact with wine. There, he decided to work again with nature in general, and with natural wine in particular. He then worked for a well-known Savoyard winemaker, Dominique Lucas.
Then in 2017, he settled on 75 ares of chasselas vines in the Marignan appellation (Savoie) less than 1km from Lake Geneva. His winery is called "Ça Boit Libre", a play on words to speak of freedom but also of the independence of his region ("Savoie Libre"). Obviously, such a large surface area does not allow him to make a living from it and Damien therefore continues in 2018 and 2019 to work as a farmhand for Anne & Jean-François Ganevat. - Petites Caves
