Vinification Details

  • Faustino I Gran Reserva is a rich and elegant wine to linger over. It is aged for at least 2 1/2 years in American and French oak barrels, and 3 years in bottle to give great length and finish

History

  • For years, portraits by Rembrandt and El Greco, and of Gluck the composer have gazed out of Faustino bottle labels. Their art has been the inspiration of one of Spain's greatest family owned bodegas since 1861. From growing its own vines, to vinification and bottling, Faustino aims for the highest control over production so you can be assured of quality wine every time
