In the summer of 2013, our team at Domaine des Jeanne has thoroughly enjoyed the successful launch of our first signature rosé wine. Where better to mark the occasion than in our French home town Ménerbes, Provence at the stunning La Veranda restaurant.
Mervyn kicked off the lunchtime event attended by the community in the local language thanking all and expressing his delight in the opportunity to work alongside the people of the Luberon and the fantastic partnership across the channel, particularly his relationship with our vintner Alex Samour.
Our host and friend Hubert Tarbouriech from La Veranda gave us a warm welcome and set out an array of exquisite canapés with fresh local flavours perfectly complimenting the rose wine. Domaine des Jeanne caps and aprons were produced for the occasion and proved somewhat a hit with our revellers.
We were delighted that among the guests was Professor Paul Huxley RA who designed the stunning label for the wine bottle. He presented the original design to Mervyn and his wife Jeanne as a gift. Spirits were high as the rosé wine flowed, not bad for an introduction!
