VINEYARD

Each year, our vineyards receive roughly 3,000 hours of sunshine, accompanied by relatively heavy rainfalls of about 600 l/ m².

The land scape of the area consists primarily of white limestone hills, known as “albariza.” Its richness is due to the fact that the region was under water thousands of years ago. To a lesser extent, areas of mud and sand appear near the coastal regions.

Lustau has two vineyards in the Jerez region:

-Montegilillo Vineyard. From its “albariza” white limestones oils,we obtain the Palomino grapes from which Manzanillas, Finos, Amontillados and Olorosos are produced.

-Las Cruces Vineyard. Near the coast. In its sandys oils, we grow Muscatel and Pedro Ximénez grapes intended for the production of sweet wines.

WINERY

Cathedral-style wineries with vaulted ceilings and immaculate “albero” floors that stabilize the temperature and humidity to maintain the unique microclimate required by Sherry ageing.

Lustau is the only winery that produces wines in each of the three cities in the Sherry triangle: Jerez de la Frontera, El Puerto de Santa María and Sanlúcar de Barrameda.

The primary wine making facilities, are located in Jerez de la Frontera. The Los Arcos winery complex, built in the 19th century, consists of six aging cellars that date from different periods.

THE ALMACENISTAS

almacenista

Almacenistas (Stock holder) are independent professionals or entrepreneurs who have been historically producing and ageing Sherry.

An Almacenista is not an Sherry shipper and there for etheir wines are usually supplied to larger commercial firms to nurse their Soleras.

The love and care of Almacenista for their activity is shown in their limited Soleras of the finest and rarest Sherries. This Soleras are still operated by the original artisanal methods. All Almacenistas existing today are small family owned operations and most of them are run as a hobby or a secondary source of income, being their core business usually based on a completely different activity.

Lustau was founded in 1896 as an Almacenista itself and has wanted to pay a tribute to this anonymous role in the Sherry trade by creating this very special range of Sherries. During the 80’s Lustau identified a group of Almacenistas from the three towns of the Sherry D.O. and selected small batches from very limited Soleras of rare old Sherries to be bottled under the Lustau Brand.

Today Lustau Almacenista range of Sherries are considered among the best wines in the world and have been recognised by the most reputed competitions winning top awards.
