In 1981, Bodegas Lustau pioneered a revolutionary project: bottling small batches of characterful wines selected from boutique bodegas owned by independent sherry producers. By displaying their names on the labels, Lustau gave these anonymous
sherry artisans - known as Almacenistas - new prominence and recognition. Today, Lustau’s Almacenista selection offers sherry lovers a unique opportunity to explore limited-release rare sherry wines originating from each corner of the sherry triangle and the possibility of tasting the liquid legacy of generations of passionate sherry craftsmen. Experience with Lustau Almacenista a collection of unrivalled gems that would otherwise have remained hidden behind prepossessing wooden gateways, nestling in a complex network of winding cobbled back streets.
