Les Vignobles André Lurton

Léognan, France

Les Vignobles André Lurton, currently one of the largest wineries in the Bordeaux region, is a family company that has been producing outstanding wines for centuries. Founded by André Lurton, a dedicated wine maker, the company’s roots run deep in the vineyards of Bordeaux, with a rich history of striving for excellence and crafting wines that embody the essence of their terroirs.

The Lurton family’s passion for viticulture dates back to their ancestors, the Récapets, who hailed from small parishes near the renowned village of Saint-Emilion. In the mid-17th century, the Récapets, who were millers by trade, also cultivated vineyards during their spare time, much like many other country dwellers of that era. This connection to the land and the art of winemaking has been passed down through generations, fueling the family’s enduring commitment to producing exceptional wines.

At Vignobles André Lurton, sustainability and environmental stewardship are integral to their winemaking practices. As active participants in the first Environmental Management System (E.M.S.) for Bordeaux wine, initiated by the C.I.V.B. Bordeaux Wine Council in 2010, the company upholds values that prioritize preserving terroirs and biodiversity, protecting worker health, and satisfying the demands of increasingly discerning consumers. 

This collaborative association now includes 210 members, accounting for 17,000 hectares of vines and 30% of all sustainably produced wines in Bordeaux. Through focus groups and action plans, Vignobles André Lurton continually improves their winemaking practices, ensuring they meet internationally-recognized standards such as ISO 14 001 certification and High Environmental Value certification.
