Wine passion
since 1986

Signature Selections was born in 1986. Its founder, Jeffrey Davies, is a native Californian and a Bordelais by adoption. Ex-wine critic with a comprehensive wine culture and knowledge, he has created his negociant company, that has rapidly become a reference in the wine world. Passionate and committed to his work of passion, he has developed and nurtured privileged relationships with the wineries, but also with the most renown wine critics of the world such as Robert Parker, a longtime friend.

Year after year, Signature Selections grows and gains international credit both on the French and international scene, while keeping a family spirit, close to growers and their terroirs.

In October 2019, Jeffrey Davies sold the company to Karim Nasser and Herwig Callewier, two passionate wine lovers with renown experience in the wine industry. Their ambition? To Keep the DNA of the company intact. To maintain its artisan spirit and to continue offering the most prestigious wines, but also rising wineries. Last but not least, they will keep sharing their love of wine.


"Signature Sélections"?

Because we are a negociant whose DNA is based on one Signature – and several Selections through a passion for quality wines, a close relationship with the estates and their people, and a sense of sharing. Grands Crus are important, but we also offer our customers wines from beautiful vineyards, little-known treasures capable of surprising the greatest connoisseurs, but also wines that we simply love to share with friends and family.


Authenticity et proximity

One would say about us that we are « artisan- wine merchant », a defender of the art of wine. Our team is dedicated to the wine and to what it represents.

As a team on the field, we regularly come to visit our partners and wineries aiming at building trust and confidence bonds, unique and precious on La Place de Bordeaux. All ears and looking for new nuggets to taste. "Our feet in the vineyard and in the cellars, a glass in our hand".

Thanks to our long-term experience, we have built a strong partnership with the international wine press. Twice a year, we host tastings for the most famous wine critics, in our office in Bordeaux.

A key moment for the wine business as the wines will be reviewed and rated. Wineries, wine merchants and of course, consumers will benefit from these important tastings. An even more strategic time for rising estates.

From the Grand Cru...
to the hidden gems, from Confidential Terroirs

We are driven by the will and the passion to defend wines that we love. From worldwide renown Grand Crus to hidden gems, still under the radar today, but that we would like you to discover!

We don’t judge a wine by its cover (label!) and we don’t only rely on a prestigious brand. What matters the most, to us, is the quality of the wine, the know-how of the winemaker, and the pleasure that we feel when tasting the wine.

We shine the spotlight on wines that are still under the consumer radar. That’s explains why some would describe us as “wine finders”. We bring these wines to the press knowledge so that they can benefit from international coverage. We are trusted by La Place de Bordeaux and beyond.

The most esteemed and confidential wineries in California have chosen to solely entrust us the distribution of their wines in Europe and Asia. A historic bond on the international market.
