The impressive Emilio Lustau bodega complex (since 1896) is located in the heart of Jerez, the proud capital of Andalusia's sherry region. The city is actually called Jerez de la Frontera, because for a long time it was on the border of a Moorish and Christian sphere of influence. What makes Lustau sherries so special? In addition to the large bodegas, the sherry region has the so-called almacenistas, 'storekeepers' of small quantities of special sherry. The Lustau bodega contains more than 20,000 barrels, a monumental wine cellar with beautiful sherries.

Manuel Lozano is the capataz (cellar master) of Lustau. He knows how the special character of sherry is created. Lozano: "Our sherries are the result of a careful selection of the best wines that have been fortified with wine alcohol and then undergo a delicate aging process in the solera". In addition to the standard series (fino, medium dry and oloroso), the fantastic Lustau Reserva sherries ripen in Lustau's bodega. And finally, in Lustau's treasury, the famous Almacenista wines are cherished: small quantities of special top sherries with a unique taste. They come from small, traditional bodegas where the art of maturing old sherries has been handed down from father to son for generations. The average age of these jewels varies from 30 to 60 years.

The Fino Janara has a pale straw yellow color with greenish reflections, clear and clean. This is a Jerez style Fino: fresh, mineral and tart on the nose with almonds and bakery notes. Dry and fresh in the mouth, yet rich and with a full aftertaste. This Lustau has matured under a veil of yeast called "flor" at Bodega Las Cruces in Jerez de la Frontera. The indoor climate in the city of Jerez de la Frontera allows for a more rounded and full-bodied style of wine.
