History of Tabanac

On the eastern bank of the Garonne, south-east of Bordeaux, Tabanac is a historic town in Entre-deux-Mers. The occupation of its territory dates back to the Neolithic period. Gallo-Roman remains bear witness to the age of the site and its continued occupation throughout history. The parish has existed since the 6th century, as evidenced by the discovery in the cemetery of a very old marble sarcophagus. Initially made up of fiefdoms under the authority of the Provost of Entre-deux-Mers, the territory of Tabanac became in the 11th century the seat of an influential seigneury. The town takes its name from the illustrious family which includes one of the archbishops of Bordeaux in the 12th century as well as a monk from the abbey of La Sauve-Majeure, whose role was crucial for the development of the vineyards of the Between two seas. The parish of Tabanac becomes common during the Revolution and takes the provisional name of Coteau-Libre.
