Domaine L&R Kox winery: where tradition meets innovation
The Domaine L&R Kox is a family-run winery located in the small, beautiful city of Remich on Moselle River’s left bank. The winery is one of the most and innovative estates in Luxembourg! The son of the winery’s founder, Laurent Kox was one of the pioneers in the elaboration of “Crémant de Luxembourg” with the appellation “Moselle
luxembourgeoise”. It is, therefore, no surprise that 30 years later, backed by this experience, his estate has the widest range of crémants in the Moselle. He was also behind the reintroduction in Luxembourg of the Saint Laurent
grape variety, which had been banned at the beginning of the 20th century because of phylloxera. As for the upcoming generation, Corinne, his daughter, installed two Kvevris in 2014 in their garden on the estate, to allow the grapes to ferment naturally, transforming themselves into rare and timeless wines.
This dynamic family is the result of a passion for wine, respect for the vineyard and oenological skills.
