This is the result of the daily hard work from a great team

“This is the result of the daily hard work from a great team. This award is for each and every one of us that work in Lustau. We continue moving forward” stated Sergio after receiving the trophy.

Luis Caballero, president of Bodegas Lustau, is proud of the award they have received: “The results of these last two years have endorsed the appointment of Sergio as the head of the Lustau team. There is no one better than him that is able to maintain the quality and style that Lustau has always been defined with.”

Sergio upholds the title that he already achieved last year and that served as a support for reaching the title of Best Winemaker in Spain in October 2017 as well.
