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.

An essential requirement for producing outstanding wines is to own the land. As part of a strategy to expand his holdings, Don Julio turned to the family recruiting his children who have completed their university studies while actively involved in the family business, participating from an early age in the labour of the vineyards, the joy of the harvest and all matters pertaining to the running of the bodega. Today they occupy managerial positions in the bodegas, maintaining the family character of the Faustino Croup. A family protocol has been implemented that will make it possible that this group of bodegas remain for 100% a family concern while ensuring a successful future where the ideal will always be to seek quality without concessions to passing fads, establishing trade links and cementing permanent friendships. – Description from JelaDragoljevic
