Les Vignobles André Lurton, currently one of the largest wineries in the Bordeaux region, is a family company.
André Lurton, the company's founder, is first and foremost a wine maker. For almost 70 years, he has dedicated his life to the vineyard. Today, he continues to spend his time loving and protecting the vines, as only a man born here can do.
Following a restructuring of the company in March 2012, Credit Agricole Grands Crus participated in providing increased capital to Les Vignobles André Lurton, anticipating a long-term relationship. This step helps ensure continuity for the family business in the years to come.
Les Vignobles André Lurton has 640 hectares of vines, planted in the best soils over 6 prestigious Bordeaux appellations in Bordeaux.
The company's head-office is at Château Bonnet in Grézillac where André Lurton was born. The red and white vineyard covers almost 300 hectares in several appellations: Entre-Deux-Mers, Bordeaux Red and Rosé. For many years, Chateau Bonnet's white wines have had a long standing international reputation for their quality.
However, Les Vignobles André Lurton also includes 260 hectares of vines in Pessac-Léognan. This appellation was created by André Lurton and selectively groups the best 'terroirs' of the Graves region the historical birth place of the Grands Vins de Bordeaux.
Les Vignobles André Lurton is also a partner in the management of other wineries, such as Château Barbe Blanche (Lussac-Saint-Emilion AOC) co-owned with André Magnon.
