Lustau was founded in 1896 by José Berdejo, a local court clerk. When he wasn’t busy with his day job, Berdejo worked the vines on his land, slowly building a sucessful local sherry company. In the 1940s, he was joined by his son-in-law Emilio Lustau, who started a process of expansion that would continue for the next half-decade or so. Lustau is now one of the world’s finest sherry brands, easily recognisable by its black, smooth-shouldered bottles. Tours of the beautiful 19th century bodegas run several times a week, in English and Spanish.
