Lustau has, over the years, won multiple medals and trophies, including Best Spanish Winery and Best Sherry Producer at the IWSC and the Len Evans Trophy for consistency (won in 2011 and 2016) at the IWC. Current cellar master Sergio Martinez took charge of the oenological team in 2016. He has been awarded the Best Fortified Winemaker trophy by the International Wine Challenge three years in a row, following in the footsteps of the late Manuel Lozano who had won this award seven times.
During the early years, Bodegas Lustau operated as an Almacenista, buying young base wines, maturing them for several years, then selling the wine on to other Bodegas. The Lustau family began bottling their own sherries and exporting by 1950. In the 1980s they expanded their range and introduced the Almacenista range, buying and maturing casks from small bodegas to share excellent quality names and styles with enthusiasts around the world.
Lustau Almacenista Cayetano del Pino y Cia is an elegant style of Palo Cortado, made from seven uniquely selected casks that exhibit saline Amontillado-esque qualities. This is a dry sherry with vibrant pecan nut aromas and intense notes of orange peel and dried fruit with a long-lasting finish.
Serve as an aperitif with olives, nuts, cheese or iberian ham. This wine can also accompany consommes, cold and smoked meats, foie-gras and many spicy Asian dishes
