Vignobles André Lurton honoured at the first "Sustainable Bordeaux Vineyard" awards

This year marked the launch of the "Sustainable Vineyard" awards, in partnership with the Terre de Vins magazine and Sud-Ouest newspaper, with the aim of supporting and promoting the "Bordeaux Sustainable Vineyard" initiative founded by the CIVB (Bordeaux Wine Council). Each year, winemaking estates, négociant firms and cooperative cellars will be awarded prizes for their social, environmental, and sustainable development practices.

The competition is divided into five categories:

  • Carbon footprint category: managing natural resources and saving energy.
  • Nature and environmental protection category: reducing the use of pesticides.
  • Flora and fauna category: promoting biodiversity.
  • Health & well-being category: respecting employees and local residents.
  • Future innovations category: committing to research and development.

The awards ceremony took place for the first time on the 11th of April, at the Cité du Vin in Bordeaux. In total, 255 applications were reviewed by a panel of professionals, of which 15 received awards for their dedication to sustainable development practices.

Vignobles André Lurton have been an active member of the first association of the EMS (Environmental Management System) for Bordeaux wines since 2010, and HEV (High Environmental Value)-certified since 2017, reflecting our commitments to environmentally-friendly practices over the past several years. It was therefore only natural that we submitted our application in the carbon footprint category (managing natural resources and saving energy).

During the evening, M. Pascal Le Faucheur, Managing Director of Vignobles André Lurton, received a Bronze medal serving as a testimony to his team's hard work and dedication in this category. Above all, this award recognises the environmentally-friendly practices adopted at all of the group's vineyards.

Always on the lookout for new challenges, Vignobles André Lurton plan to continue pursuing their efforts in this field. This year, we joined a new pilot group, launched by the CIVB, with the aim of developing a CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) initiative, combining environmental, societal and regulatory measures. Our transition towards CSR will help us respond to new issues regarding the company, the sector, and surrounding regions!
