The vineyards of Pomerol gradually developed between the 12th century and the French Revolution under the aegis of the knights of Saint-Jean of Jerusalem, Rhodes and Malta. Château Gazin, which was a hamlet in the 18th century, is most probably located on the site of the ‘Hospital of Pomeyrols”, built by the knights to receive pilgrims on the Santiago de Compostela route. This was the inspiration for the name of the property’s second wine “LHospitalet de Gazin”.
