Bodega Faustino was built in 1968 but wine production under the Faustino name began long before that when, in 1861, Eleutorio Martinez Arzok purchased a vineyard in Oyon, Spain.  The vineyard stayed in the family and bottling begin in 1930 by Faustino Martinez Perez de Albeniz. Bodega Faustino sits on a little over 1,500 acres across the municipalities of Laguardia, Logrono, Mendavia, and Oyon in Northeastern Spain.  By combining local climate and conditions with the tradition and experience of winemakers, Faustino wines are recognized and celebrated all over the world. Stainless steel tanks and state-of-the-art technologies are combined with traditional processes to create the unique Faustino wines that, after being aged in either American or French Oak, continue to be celebrated.
