11.12.15 Luis Caballero Restructures; Mosto Competition Results

The Caballero group which includes Emilio Lustau has decided to reorganise to increase competitivity and profitability. Caballero consists of 40 companies, and to simplify things there will be three holding companies all owned by the family: Luis Caballero SA which will be the industrial firm; Caballero El Puerto SLU which will be the spirits firm and Emilio Lustau will be the wine firm. At a press conference the managing director, Luis Luengo assured the workforce that their jobs were safe and that he hoped there would be more work, not less.

The results of the II Mosto Competition organised by the Consejo have been announced. The competition took place to the sound of zambombas at the Atalaya. There were 32 samples in two categories, all tasted blind by the Consejo tasting panel:

Mosto from DO bodegas: 1st González Byass; 2nd Barbadillo; 3rd Hidalgo La Gitana
Mosto from DO growers: 1st and 2nd Emmanuel Pemán Domecq; 3rd Juan Núñez Moreno

Beltrán Domecq said that with the competition it was hoped to give value back to the origin of the wine: the vineyard, and demonstrate the excellence of the young wines. This competition has become a fixture in the activities of Jerez thanks to keen participation of the producers and the public which also took part in the tastings.
