Lacapelle Cabanac is the culmination of a dream belonging to Thierry Simon & Philippe Verax, who had careers in the software industry. They found themselves wishing to leave the urban jungle of Paris and head for the slopes of Cahors in the Southwest of France to make wine. Meanwhile, 25 years before these two sojourners headed south, the winery that was destined to be theirs underwent a complete overhaul in 1978. Its then owner converted an abandoned building on the property into a winery. During the renovation he discovered a stone infrastructure that proved to be the vestiges of a winery dating back to the 18th century.
