Nested in the heart of the village of Saint-Emilion, Couvent des Jacobins has been a family-owned business since 1902. Jean Jean acquired the estate and his great great grandson Xavier is now continuing the tradition of the Grand Cru Classé with a hint of innovation. Thus, it is no surprise that once you enter the doors of Couvent, you head into a time-travel adventure. Couvent des Jacobins was certified in organic farming in fall 2020 ; ethic is a core value for both the owners and the staff. 


The numerous experiences offered at Couvent are both original and playful whether you are visiting Saint-Emilion for work or during your vacation. The tours immerge couples, friends or families in the midst of the wine-making philosophy, and transport them on board of a tuk-tuk through the vines, the quarries and the cellars.


  • First steps in Couvent is a tour entirely focused on the tasks of the cellar room and the vat-house, and ends with the tasting of the 2 wines of the domaine.
  • In the boots of the winemaker leads you on board of a tuk-tuk in the middle of the vines. You will be actively involved in the vines while being taught the various techniques of winemaking : the pruning in the winter, the leave-trimming in the summer andobviously the harvest.
  • The murmurings of Couvent invites you to an exclusive and cosy tasting comparing a young and ancient vintage of Couvent des Jacobins, inside the monolithic cave; after a tuk-tuk tour in the vines.
  • The Trilogy of Couvent leads you from Couvent to the cellar of CALICEM (our 3rd label) with a stop in a selection of our plots. Tasting of 3 wines with a speechless view on the vineyard of Saint-Emilion.
  • The Delicacies of Couvent is a weekly rendez-vous in the gardens of the cloister. Either sweet or salty, this gourmet break shall conclude perfectly well your day at work or on the beach.
