Presenting him with his prize, the jury highlighted the excellent results that the Jerez-based winery has achieved. With twelve gold medals and two trophies as the best in their category, Lustau is once again the most awarded Spanish winery in the 36th edition of the prestigious International Wine Challenge.

“Following the outstanding results achieved by Lustau in the leading international wine competitions, this award is the cherry on the cake. Every year the competition is ever greater and it gets more and more difficult to win, but with the Lustau team, everything is possible,” said Sergio, upon receiving the trophy that names him the world’s best fortified winemaker.

The results of the International Wine & Spirit Competition (IWSC) were also released this week, with Lustau obtaining 31 medals, making it the sherry winery with the most gold medals in the competition.

In the same vein were the 49 medals obtained in the Decanter World Wine Awards (DWWA), in particular the Best in Show medals given to Lustau Oloroso VORS and Amontillado del Castillo Almacenista Antonio Caballero y Sobrinos
