A Founding Winery of Rioja
Bodegas Martínez Lacuesta was founded in 1895 in Haro by Félix Martínez Lacuesta. Today his great grandson, Luis, runs the bodega, applying the same methods.
We partner only with the best producers in their categories who adhere to traditional methods, and who have a hand in every aspect of production. Our suppliers are respected European distilleries and wineries committed to artisan production to stand out from the commercial pack.
Aperitif categories like vermouth and gentian wine are misunderstood in America despite being a must-have element of any proper home or professional bar. We invest in education to help our fellow imbibers better understand the origin, production, and applications of these categories.
Few drinkers today truly understand what is in their glass, or how it got there. We are proud to work with family-owned producers who talk openly about their sourcing, ingredients and production techniques. Consumers and industry professionals deserve to know what they are drinking / pouring.
ST RAPHAËL, founded in 1830, is the oldest French Quinquina in production today. It became ingrained in French culture during the "30' Glorieuses," or the thirty years following World War II. Dining, cafe culture, and lively bistros had returned in force to France and St. Raphaël was the drink of choice.
