Vignobles André Lurton President
Born in 1924 into a family of winegrowers from the Entre-deux-Mers region, André Lurton became one of the most ardent defenders of Bordeaux wines, especially the Graves. For over fifty years, this lover of fine wine has poured his heart and soul into the Bordeaux vineyards!
A pioneer of progress, he worked towards the creation of the Pessac-Léognan appellation in 1987 (the latest addition to the Bordeaux appellations) and also saved Château Couhins-Lurton from disappearing in 1967.
His relentless efforts to preserve the great terroirs of the Graves and Entre-deux-Mers region serve as a testimony to his immense dedication to the Bordeaux wine region.
