Gonzague & Claire Lurton Vineyards

Gonzague & Claire Lurton Vineyards
The union of Gonzague & Claire is the merging of two eminent wine families in Bordeaux: the Lurton family and the Merlaut family. Their extended family owns numerous Chateaux in the Bordeaux area and all over the world.

Gonzague and Claire Lurton respectively took control of their family properties in Bordeaux in 1992 and 1993. Then, in 2012, with an insatiable taste for adventure, they acquired a boutique vineyard in California, ACAIBO, in the famous Sonoma valley. Today Gonzagues and Claire manage the 6 estates, closely looking to their vineyards getting a environmental friendly treatment that takes the exceptional terroir into consideration.

In 2007 and 2009, Biodynamic tests, had been conducted at Haut Bages Liberal and Durfort-Vivens before being extended to all their vineyards. Since 2016 they own 3 out of the 6 Bordeaux classified growths to be led 100% Biodynamic. Respect and efforts are applied to preserve the soil and sub-soil. Thanks to plowing and moderate fertilizing, microbial life in the soil is maintained, revealing the exceptional terroir.

This approach stems from acknowledging the strong heritage of an exceptional terroir that needs to be preserved and kept sustainable thanks to an eco-friendly viticulture. Nowadays, at the head of 6 estates, Gonzague & Claire share this common passion.
