In 1978, the owner of the Château Lacapelle-Cabanac restored a building invaded by waste land and converted this outbuilding into a winery. During the restoration work, he discovered a structure of arched stones where the upper part was covered with fine channels. These were the vestiges of the winery dating from the 18th century. On the top part, the grapes were trodden and the juice flowed out by the channels into hogsheads which were placed on the floor. More than 200 years later Château Lacapelle Cabanac has just returned to its wine-growing vocation.
