Linlithgow Wines: Photo Gallery
When he was seriously wounded at the battle of Verdun during the First World War, Private Gracia could not return to tending his vines. He became the “Tabataire” or tobacconist in a local village, a concession given by the French Government to many returning soldiers. Many years later, his grandson Bruno returned to the vineyards and in honour of his grandfather he named his estate “Domaine du Tabatau” – child of the Tabataire. Welcome to real wine made by real people.

Rather grander than most of the southern vineyards, the family house at Chateau de Gourgazaud. The South African flag is in honour of some visitors - must be good customers!
