History of Domaine Merlin

Portraits of Paul and Théo


Two passionated brothers and sons


BTS in viticulture and oenology from the Davayé high-school and Changins


The two brothers, Paul and Théo, born in 1996 and 1993 respectively each have a BTS in viticulture and oenology from the Davayé high school. Théo completed his initial training with three years of studies at the University of Viticulture and Oenology of Changins in Switzerland. He obtained his engineering degree in 2016. 

International experiences


Both of them have multiplied their experiences in other French and foreign vineyards: „All the winegrowers we have worked with have profoundly inspired us and brought us unique experiences, each according to their personalities and values“; say Paul and Théo. 

Trip to Australia


They then went to Australia together for the harvest in the spring of 2017, an experience that introduced them to different approaches of growing and winemaking and of course a new working philosophy. 

Passionated about their profession and strong of their experiences, they will continue the work of their parents.


Paul and Théo will gradually be able to bring their own cultivation methods to make the best of the extraordinary range of terroirs entrusted to them, which extends over 8 hectares in the communes of Davayé, Vergisson, Fuissé and Chaintré.
