7.2.16 Yuste Buys Argüeso
Transport and distribution magnate Francisco Yuste has bought Bodegas Argüeso. He already owns a lot of amazing wines such as Pedro Romero’s Aurora and the soleras of the Conde de Aldama, (which he intends to market as VOS and VORS in spring) so this deal will make him the second biggest bodega with some 10,000 butts in Sanlúcar after Barbadillo. Francisco is the leader of the Association of Artisan Bodegas of Sanlúcar, the BIB rebels, and despite the Consejo acceptance of a change to the wording of the rules, he hopes that it might trip up as it has to be approved by both the Junta and Brussels.
