GC Lurton Vineyard Tasting Room

Gonzague and Claire Lurton have managed independently their own properties during 20 years in Bordeaux. They decided to have a joint challenge “elsewhere” that is to say outside Bordeaux. They found their gem in the heart of Chalk Hill and named it Trinite Estate.

This beautiful vineyard made of hills, is located 750 feet above sea level. The soil is loamy and clayey and it recovers a subsoil of rocks of volcanic origin. The main grape varieties of Bordeaux are the cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and merlot. In this place, the three grapes find the best conditions for an optimal ripening. Thus the wines have a pure fruit, elegant tannins and an amazing freshness.

Everything is done to guarantee the natural balance of the plant and the wine. The organic farming, the natural balance of the sugar and the acidity give to the wine a faithful reflection of the splendid land of Sonoma County. The name of the wine ACAIBO (meaning three fish in the Pomo language, a local Native American tribe) already competes with the greatest California wines but with a sophistication touch of the Bordeaux style.
