Michael Ganne is originally from the Médoc region near Bordeaux and naturally chose to dedicate himself to the wine business. Yet his unswerving taste for novelty spanned well beyond the great Bordeaux wines of his native land.
A graduate of the International Vine and Wine Office with a Master of Wine Management, Michael has visited more than twenty-four countries and met with the most influential people in the business.
A strong promoter of the great vintage bottles he unearths, Michael auctioned some of the most glamorous sales as Head of Continental Europe for the Wine Department at Christie's.
Yet, relentlessly looking for new perspectives, Michael decides to found his own auction house, Baghera/wines, in 2015. Since Baghera/wines' creation, we owe Michael the most impressive world records, including the biggest wine auction ever: “Henri Jayer, The Heritage” which he auctioned in June 2018, selling for CHF 34,5M.
Julie Carpentier’s past is deeply rooted to the Loire valley. These regional origins may very well have given her the desire to take the plunge and work in wineries and vineyards. Yet it may simply have been the encounter with her husband-to-be, an accomplished winemaker…
In a former life, Julie studied Art and Archaeology at the École du Louvre before joining Christie's Wine Department as Wine Specialist, where she dedicated her expertise to fine wines.
Also a graduate from WSET, Julie has shown a remarkable understanding of native varietals together with an overall taste for exceptional and unique crus.
Thus, when Michael asked her to join him in the creation of Baghera/wines, she did not hesitate to be part of the venture as Deputy Director, heading the team. Having developed strong ties with Domains, especially in Burgundy, Julie enjoys meeting vintners and people of the vine, pursuing her defense for the recognition and promotion of the art of winemaking.
An early passionate, following his “soul of wine”, Francesco is a true enthusiast. Having travelled far and wide and tasted many legendary wines, he has shared his in-depth knowledge with connoisseurs worldwide and collectors for many years.
Originally working as an equities research analyst in a French investment bank, Francesco changed his career to the wine industry, joining Christie's as Senior Wine Specialist and Associate VP in 2008, where he co-organized, amongst others, the Château Latour ex-cellar sale in 2011 in Hong-Kong.
Catching up on their mutual passion for fine wines, Michael and Francesco joined forces to develop and strengthen Baghera/wines’ presence throughout Asia. A fervent amateur of European culture and of exceptional French wines especially, Francesco loves bringing people and continents together over the finest crus.
Arthur Leclerc, born in Geneva, comes from a family of restaurateurs who passed on the taste for cooking and sharing gourmet cuisine. An insatiable epicurean, Arthur is fascinated with all things food and trained in the kitchens of a gastronomic restaurant.
Arthur then went on to study at the prestigious École Hôtelière de Genève where he was particularly captivated by event management and œnology. He complemented his hospitality training with two in-house professional experiences at the Ritz Hotel in Paris and at the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie in Geneva.
Whilst pursuing his passion for the study of wines and spirits, Arthur met Michael and Julie during the inaugural Baghera/wines auction. He joined the team as Sales & Events Officer during the organization of the “Henri Jayer, The Heritage” auction in 2018.
An artist's daughter and grand-daughter, of British and French origins, Olivia has always been sensitive to the intricate geography of signs. Brought up in a multicultural artistic environment on 2 languages, classical music, jazz, PG tips tea, ponies, cats&dogs and books, she fell in love with Hitchcock's oeuvre at an early age and decided to study Dramatic Art in the United Kingdom. She later pursued her acting training in Paris and Moscow and worked as an actress for the theater and cinema for fifteen years.
Family heredity compellingly made its way back, as the atavic urge for drawing and all things graphic sprung up again. Whether sketching portraits on paper tablecloths in restaurants or in her countless notebooks at the terraces of literary cafes in Paris, the fascination for signs on paper led Olivia to join some of the largest publishing houses in Paris and French press groups.
Michael invited her to join Baghera/wines as Art Director in 2015 and she has since signed Baghera's graphic identity and catalogues.

With his technical and analytical mindset combined with his passion for fine wines, Pablo joined Baghera/wines in 2019 as Wine Specialist within the team.
At his early career stages, Pablo gained financial knowledge by working several years in Private Equity. But his always increasing curiosity led Pablo to continue learning about the wine business by studying at the WSET.
