Located in the heart of the beautiful hills, on the former site of a 13th century Dominican monastery in Saint- Émilion, Couvent des Jacobins is one of the gems of French wine heritage.

Le Couvent des Jacobins was built in 1389 for the Jacobin preaching brothers, a gift made by the Duke of Lancaster, son of King Edward III of England. These Dominican monks, planted a remarkable vineyard around the walls that surrounded the city. During the 16th and 17th centuries, the wines made from the grapes of these vines were recognized as the most characteristic of all Saint-Emilion. The monks left the monastery in 1780s, leaving the ownership of a succession of various notable families.

Since 1902, the Joinaud–borde family has continued the tradition of the noble vineyards of old, while preserving the soul of this great historic place.
