Who are we?

Love for the wine trade

Direct Domaines Distribution was established in 1993 by Hervé Kerlann who has a great love for wine and the wine trade.  This noble profession runs in the family as his parents and grandparents were vineyards owners and wine négociants.

Hervé Kerlann, a true cultural architect and pioneer, has been involved in the wine world for over 30 years, working closely with Asian cultures to which he is very attuned.

Ms Siyue Wu-Touron joined the team in October 2001 and is now the Company’s General Manager. She has built her professional skills over the years through regular training, working closely with our dedicated wine producers and has become an elite taster. Her knowledge of fine wines, as well as her dual Franco-Chinese nationality, has enabled our company to build a solid reputation throughout the whole of Asia.

Since 2018, we have expanded our activities in other area of the world, a strong demand from our partner Domaines, aiming at the same quality of service as we do in Asia. We are now serving the United States, Canada and Russia.

In 2019, we built a warehouse of 1200sqm in Sainte Marie La Blanche. This building, designed and fully equipped to store fine wines in an optimal way, allows us to propose enhanced services of consolidation to our clients, and an improved comfort for all our partner Domaines.

Visionnary since 1993

Ever since its creation, Direct Domaines Distribution has anticipated a dual phenomenon:

  • the rise of the Asia Pacific region. Local consumers are becoming increasingly interested in the complexities of the French terroirs and their exceptional wines.
  • the wine producers‘ need for commercial and cultural support.

Pioneering spirit

For the past 20 years Direct Domaines Distribution has been dedicated to the Asia Pacific region. Our long-term commitment is not founded on opportunism but rather on a deep understanding of Asian cultures.
Our team has the rare ability to anticipate market needs and trends and to be constantly ahead of the game.
Always being that one step ahead has proven to be a valuable asset in this constantly evolving region.
