The list of founders, at the time of the creation, says a lot about the why of this creation: it is the conjunction between two interests, that of winemakers in search of stable outlets and Parisians, cabaretiers and cabernet lovers, eager to ensure a steady supply of quality.
In Anjou, play a key role: Jean Falloux and Simon Régnard: the first as a wine grower and general counselor, is Honorary President; the second, as a winemaker and usual supplier of Parisian coffees including ``Le Cabernet``, is ``President`` and ``Grand Master``. They are accompanied, during this creation, by three winemakers from Nueil - Passavant: René Blet, Richard Jacques and Falloux Etienne. But, significant, the first honorary president named is ``Father Joseph Bréhéret``, pastor of Nueil; the socio-economic role of the clergy is found here, as in many other innovations of the time.
In Paris, the seat is fixed, noblesse oblige, at the Café ``Le Cabernet``, in the City of Antin, department stores district. Testimonies such as the composition of the board of directors underline the crucial role played by two people: Raymond Brassié, editor of ``La Revue Française`` who receives the title of ``Propaganda and Protocol Officer``; René Courtois, who runs the café in the Cité d'Antin, is in charge of ``External Relations``. In addition, a number of Galeries Lafayette executives, men and women, also played their role.
