Lafitte is a French family with a reputation in the cork industry for supplying the finest cork for over four generations. Beginning in France, the company moved its major production site to Northern Portugal in 1956, in order to be directly involved in the selection of fine cork from the most thriving and sustainable cork forests in the world. In 2003, Lafitte purchased a second processing plant in Portugal to meet an increasing demand for quality cork production.
In 1982 Jacques Lafitte opened a processing facility in Napa, CA, known as Lafitte Cork & Capsule. This facility processes cork and capsules for direct sale to North American customers. Lafitte Cork and Capsule offers a full inventory of cork grades, lengths, and washes for lot selection. In addition to wine closures, LCC offers a complete range of stock PVC, Polylaminate, Alustar, and Tin capsules at our Napa plant. We can also offer fully customizable capsules manufactured at our facilities in France in a wide array of sizes, colors, and finishes to meet your precise marketing and technical demands. Lafitte Cork & Capsule has built an impressive reputation in the wine packaging industry by delivering the highest quality natural cork closures and foils for decades. We take immense pride in offering the best service platform in North America.
