Laurent Kox, the founder’s son, helped to establish Luxemboug’s Crémant appellation 30 years ago (today the estate produces one of the widest Crémant ranges on the Moselle), and was also responsible for the reintroduction of the Saint Laurent grape variety into the country.
More recently, his daughter Corinne installed two Kvevri tanks on the estate, and produced Luxembourg’s first orange wines. Other experimentations include the usage of Luxembourgish oak barrels, as well as the introduction of the first grape ale and the first verjus produced in Luxembourg.
