The Vignerons de Saint Pey-Génissac are today positioned as the one of the best producers of crémant de Bordeaux.
An Entre-deux-Mers cooperative resulting from the merger in 2009 of the Génissac cellar, founded in 1936, and that of Saint-Pey-de-Castets, created in 1949. The new structure has a thousand of hectares cultivated by its members.
Contraction of lux (light) and Lucius (a Roman dignitary who coined money), Luccios refers to the Roman gold currency found in the vines used to produce the crémant. The winegrowers’s know-how to elaborate cremants of Bordeaux for more than 30 years and the exceptional soil of the vineyard situated at the confluence of the Garonne and the Dordogne give Luccios a unique and elegant character.
