Welcome to Domaine du Grand Mayne. We have been producing award-winning red, white and rosé wines from our beautiful vineyard in south-west France since 1985. The vineyard, in the Côtes de Duras, has the perfect combination of soil, aspect and climate – known as terroir, which our French team, headed by the talented winemaker Mathieu Crosnier, lovingly tend to create our wines. Click on this link to join Mathieu on a virtual tour, as he shows you around the vineyard, winery and the guest house.
From succulent reds to citrusy whites we produce five wonderful wines to suit all palates and price ranges. Our wine is available direct from the vineyard which can be shipped to your home, picked up in Calais or at the vineyard.

Our vineyards have the benefit of soil that is 80 percent clay and sand, and 20 percent limestone, these are soils that are ideally suited to the production of top quality wines, especially when the summers and autumns are very dry. From this we produce five wines from each vintage: Sauvignon, Rosé, Merlot Cabernet, Réserve Sauvignon Sémillon and Réserve Merlot Cabernet.
Our story started in 1985 when Andrew Gordon, an English wine merchant, bought Domaine du Grand Mayne. Andrew transformed the property from what was an abandoned vineyard with semi-derelict buildings, overgrown copses and fields of maize and golden-headed sunflowers to the flourishing vineyard and winery that we see today.
We now have more than 120,000 vines planted on 34 hectares (84 acres)and Domaine du Grand Mayne is now one of the top vineyards in the Côtes de Duras, with the potential to produce over a quarter of a million bottles of award winning wine each year.
Mathieu joined us in 2011 and along with his team have produced some wonderful wines that have received many awards and commendations. Martin Meinert, a leading winemaker from South Africa who has worked at some of Bordeaux’s top estates, joined the team in 2014 to bring New World style to the French quality and complexity of our wine.
A change of ownership in 2013 brought with it a fresh approach and a root and branch review of the business. Philip Addis, whose background is in wine retailing, joined in 2014 and openly admits that he fell under the spell of Domaine while sipping Sauvignon on the veranda of La Maison. Richard Boden joined in 2015 and completes the UK team. Andrew continues to be involved as a non-executive director and is a regular at our events.
We have recently completed a crowd funding campaign with Seedrs and we are excited to welcome our new shareholders to the Grand Mayne family.
