The story begins in 1818, when the Lestapis Brothers, from Gascony, settled in Bordeaux to establish their wine shipping company.
The business thrived quickly and the Lestapis Brothers buy the Château Calon Ségur in Saint-Estèphe, which they kept until the end of the 19th century. They diversified their activity with coffee trading and the exploitation of three plantations in Cuba. After the First World War, René de Lestapis became the exclusive agent of the port of Bordeaux for the most famous Cognac houses, instigating a know-how in the spirits that persists today.
After 5 generations of Lestapis, the activity refocused itself on Bordeaux Wines Trading, and was then sold, as no member of the family wished to take up the torch
