ALMACENISTAS

Decanter - - NEWS -

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.
