Widespread French wine-growing family empire with worldwide commitments and possessions. The extended family consists of the three brothers André (1924-2019) with seven, Dominique (1932-2010) with four and Lucien Lurton (1925-2023) with eleven children. The mother vineyard is Château Bonnet in the Entre-deux-Mers area of Bordeaux with 240 hectares of vines. André and Lucien acquired numerous vineyards in the 1960s and 1970s. André's focus was mainly Graves with the Château Couhins-Lurton, Château de Cruzeau, Château de Rochemorin and Château La Louvière estates. He was also instrumental in the classification of Pessac-Léognan as an appellation in its own right. Through extensive purchase of vineyards and their revitalisation, he prevented the urban sprawl and urbanisation of this area. André Lurton was also the first in Bordeaux to introduce screw caps even for renowned Châteaux wines.

Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.
