Welcome to Le Caveau ‘On Trade’ and ‘Off Trade’ Zone,
Born in Gevrey-Chambertin, Burgundy, Pascal Rossignol has worked for three years with late Burgundy wine producer and first cousin Joseph Roty (1985-1987) before to embark in a career in the Restaurant and Hotel industry (1988 – 1999). He opened Le Caveau wine shop in Kilkenny with Geraldine in August 1999.
Geraldine Rossignol grew up in Augha, Co.Carlow, she worked in the Hotel industry in Ireland, UK and France.
Geraldine split her time between Le Caveau wine shop, website orders management and accounts. A true “cordon bleu” she enjoys cooking at home, visiting fine restaurants and loves experimenting with food and wine matching.
Wholesale Account Manager for the South and West, Colm McCan joined Le Caveau in June 2014. Colm grew up in Co. Tipperary in the family guesthouse business, a listed historic property with a 250 year old wine cellar so no surprise that Colm has been interested in all things wine related since. Following completion of studies including Diploma in Business Management (Hotel and Catering Management – Block Release) GMIT, and wine studies through the WSET, Colm has worked in high profile hotels and restaurants both in Ireland and overseas for the past 25 years, joining Ballymaloe House in 1995 as head sommelier, a position that won him much praise from patrons and peers alike, including Food and Wine Best Sommelier in Ireland in 2014. Colm is head wine lecturer at the Ballymaloe Cookery School and he is the organiser of the wine and drinks events of the late, internationally acclaimed Kerrygold Ballymaloe Literary Festival of Food and Wine (LitFest), bringing together top names of the Irish and International wine and drinks World.
