The origins of The House of Lustau date back to 1896, when Mr. José Ruiz-Berdejo, started cultivating the vines of the family’s estate in his spare time. In these humble beginnings he made wines which were then sold to larger sherry producers. This activity was known as being an almacenista. Lustau is nowadays considered a world-class benchmark for top – quality wines. Lustau has repeatedly been awarded with multiple awards and trophies from around the world. These accolades have been achieved by our products and our team, both considered best of the industry. The day-to-day work and the wisdom transmitted from generation to generation of craftsmen, come together in the care of our casks.
More than 125 years of history and expertise combined with our team’s passion and dedication shape the character and personality of our wines.

"La Bodega Obregón runs a popular tavern in El Puerto de Santa María, where they serve their own Sherries as well as selections they sell to Lustau for the Almacenista line. This Fino del Puerto is intense in citrus and salty notes, like preserved lemons. Its texture is rustic, yet delightfully fresh, completely enveloping the wine’s intensity."

"The pungent walnut note up front makes this seem bigger than a fino. Remains brisk and salty overall, offering jicama, dried lemon rind and star fruit notes through the middle and finish. Stays relatively true to type. For fans of more rustic-edged fino."
