Each year, our vineyards receive roughly 3,000 hours of sunshine, accompanied by relatively heavy rainfalls of about 600 l/ m².
The land scape of the area consists primarily of white limestone hills, known as “albariza.” Its richness is due to the fact that the region was under water thousands of years ago. To a lesser extent, areas of mud and sand appear near the coastal regions.
Lustau has two vineyards in the Jerez region:
-Montegilillo Vineyard. From its “albariza” white limestones oils,we obtain the Palomino grapes from which Manzanillas, Finos, Amontillados and Olorosos are produced.
-Las Cruces Vineyard. Near the coast. In its sandys oils, we grow Muscatel and Pedro Ximénez grapes intended for the production of sweet wines.
Cathedral-style wineries with vaulted ceilings and immaculate “albero” floors that stabilize the temperature and humidity to maintain the unique microclimate required by Sherry ageing.
Lustau is the only winery that produces wines in each of the three cities in the Sherry triangle: Jerez de la Frontera, El Puerto de Santa María and Sanlúcar de Barrameda.
The primary wine making facilities, are located in Jerez de la Frontera. The Los Arcos winery complex, built in the 19th century, consists of six aging cellars that date from different periods.
