Damascene & V’know


The Damascene founders were united by three passions; the pursuit of excellence, a spirit of discovery, and the desire to preserve nature through sustainable agriculture. Wine entrepreneur David Curl (the former owner of Chateau Gaby in Canon-Fronsac) had begun discussions with winemaker Jean Smit about his involvement in Moya Meaker wines but after many long conversations about life, the meaning of quality, and the philosophical search for what wine should be, they were both convinced that their collaboration would not end there. Within six months, Damascene was conceived, a series of wines that would tell the story, not of their owners, or marketing trends, but of the very vineyards themselves.

We were impressed with the new vintages and excited for those who manages to store a case or two as these wines will age beautifully.


Wine appreciation is not about snobbery and exclusivity. Wine appreciation is a lifestyle that can be unlocked through knowledge. The key to enjoying a good wine is to understand its composition, how to consume it and when. The company you are in, the setting and the occasion also play their part. V’know / pronounced vi-no/ is a down-to-earth wine appreciation pack offers a door into this knowledge filled world for the people who purchase it, with the added benefit of convenience by delivering to your doorstep.  We see our Wine Club as a journey. Whether your interests lie in everyday wines or truly special vintages, we want you to understand not just what you like but why you like it.
The V’know team undertake an extensive selection process in order to source excellent, new and exciting wines, the hidden gems which come from passionate wine makers. Every two months, 6 bottles of these discoveries can be delivered directly to your door for you to enjoy.
