Bodegas Lustau was founded in 1896 by Mr. José Ruiz-Berdejo. His son-in-law Emilio Lustau Ortega moved the winery to the old neighbourhood of Santiago, in the historic quarter of Jerez de la Frontera. There, in buildings that formed part of the historic Moorish walls of the city, he slowly began to expand the business, still as a vintner. In 1950, the company began exporting its own wines from Jerez. Lustau’s Pedro Ximénez grapes are laid out in the sun for several days to raisin. Fermentation is stopped, in order to keep the natural sugar of the grapes. Afterwards this wine is fortified and then aged in the “solera and criaderas” system. Dark mahogany in colour and viscous. Redolent of ripe fruit in the mouth, dried figs and roasted coffee beans. Very sweet, velvety and soft in the mouth, with an extremely long aftertaste.
