ONE FAMILY : GENERATIONS OF EXPERTISE

» Five Generations of Winemaking!

Viticulture takes centre stage in our family, thanks to Benoit Luquet (1847-1905), a Vigneron from Fuissé, and Jacques Rollin (1851-1933), Proprietaire-Récoltant.

Jean Luquet (1878-1955) increased the establishment.

Maurice Luquet (1913-2003) took over from his father, Jean, in 1938.
He increased the Domaine's Pouilly-Fuissé production.

Maurice, who was the first person to export Luquet wines abroad using French Embassies, retired in 1978.

In November 1966, his son Roger, with his wife Renée, moved to the 4.70 hectares estate that then made up Domaine Luquet Roger.

Following years of hard work, a sales network was forged in France and abroad.
In 1972, all of the harvest was bottled.

The business expanded to include appellation Saint Veran in 1972 and Macon Blanc in 1984, and reached a total of 12 hectares in 1992.
Christine (Roger and Renée’s daughter) joined the company in 1987.
Then Thierry Mathieu, Christine’s husband, took up the position of Chef de Culture, or Viticultural Manager, in 1990.

Finally in 1992, Roger and Renée's son, Patrick, joined the rest of the family in the business.
In the same year, Domaine Luquet Roger changed its status to become GAEC Domaine Luquet Roger.
The 4th and 5th generations are now working side by side to increase production of Saint-Veran and Pouilly-Fuissé, as well as Macon-Villages (in the Cluny region).

In 2014, the cultivated land area reached nearly 30 hectares, including the following appellations: POUILLY-FUISSE, POUILLY-LOCHE, SAINT-VERAN, MACON-VILLAGES, MACON-FUISSE, BOURGOGNE CHARDONNAY and CREMANT DE BOURGOGNE.

This amounted to approximately 230,000 bottles produced, 40% of which were sold in France and 60% on the global market.
