After invasions of barbares, the vineyard of Cahors was ruined. Mr Saint Didier, lord of Cahors, left the kingdom and devoted himself to give a new dynamic era back to the Quercy region. The vineyard increased and the wines of Cahors regained their prestige. Saint Didier, first advocate of the black wine of Cahors, left then his wine empire and vineyard estates to the Bishops of Cahors. Today, at Château Saint Didier-Parnac, the Rigal family continues to improve their on going tradition of Cahors win making, now recognised by most growers of the appellation.
