Clos des Jacobins takes its name from the Dominican monks known as “Jacobins” whose convent was attached to the Church of Saint-Jacques in Paris.
These Jacobins lived on the outskirts of the Saint-Emilion village and used the farm buildings to accommodate pilgrims on their way to or from Santiago de Compostela. They farmed the vineyard to produce their wine, which provided them with most of their income.
