Our people are more than just colleagues, we are family. Our ethos is one of respect for each other and fostering an atmosphere where everyone can thrive, making Domaine Des Jeanne the best we can be.
Lord Mervyn Davies
A businessman and family man, but above all, a Welshman, Lord Mervyn Davies of Abersoch has enjoyed a successful career in banking and government. Both of which, he says with good humour, have fuelled his love of good wine.
Lady Jeanne Davies
Jeanne Davies has been Mervyn’s rock for more than 40 years. A fan of all things Provençal, Jeanne is passionate about wine, art and enjoys experimenting with French food – when she isn’t busy with the wine that is!
Co-FOUNDER & WINEMAKER
Alexandre Samour has been making wine for more than 15 years. His dream of making his own blend came to fruition after a chance meeting with Mervyn Davies in 2011.
Described as a petite force of nature, Veronique Escande is Alex’s partner, and the lynchpin bringing together all aspects of the business across the Channel.
The daughter of Alex and Veronique, Petite Jeanne was 8 years old when DDJ was born. A lively sprite with sparkling eyes, Jeanne loves accompanying her father to survey the vines.
