For many years, Vignobles André Lurton have been committed to environmentally-responsible policies aimed at protecting the vineyard ecosystems (integrated farming, joining the S.M.E. – Bordeaux wine Environmental Management System - when it was launched in 2010, etc.). Our efforts to modify  our vineyard management methods, particularly by restricting the use of vineyard treatment products, are starting to produce results and these new practices seem to have a positive impact on biodiversity.
