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.

bolder fruit, darker fruit flavors, nice complexity

Easy to drink, notes of oak and cherries, not too complex.

An excellent Rioja in the best tradition of the region. The color of this wine is very lively with the producer claiming to contain ochre cues, which it really does to my astonishment! Very nice aroma with the freshness of the grapes preserved and vanilla touches from the oak barrels. The taste is full but medium, very nice balance on the sweetness, it feels consistent with an excellent finish.

    I've bought from Cologne and now, I'm trying in Istanbul. If you compare with its price: good wine. Red fruits, a little tobacco and oak. But oak is dominante.

    Joven, tart plain and uninspiring. Some fruit, and saved by a decent finish. (Tasted as part of a marathon at the Wines from Spain trade event.)

    Smooth and supple, this red delivers plum, leaf, light vanilla and earth flavors, with gentle acidity and modest tannins. A beam of berry fruit shines through the finish.
