Manuel Lozano, head winemaker of Lustau, dies

 Manuel Lozano

During the #winelover trip to Jerez we had a great visit on 10th February and we were very privileged to have Manuel Lozano lead us round the Lustau Bodega explaining the mysteries of sherry. He had been unwell and it wasn't certain that he would be present – but he was. It is very sad to learn that Manuel died last Tuesday 26th April.   

Statement from Lustau:
'It is with profound sadness that we announce Manuel Lozano, Head Winemaker and Chief Enologist of Bodega Lustau Sherries and Brandies died on Tuesday, April 26, 2016 after suffering from complications following a recent medical procedure. He was 61.

Recognized among the world’s great winemakers, Manuel’s passion, commitment, expertise and success leave an unforgettable legacy.

Since joining Bodega Lustau in 1999, Manuel took pride in continuing the traditions of his predecessors to dedicate his whole life to Sherry wines.

“It has been an honor and privilege to work with and learn from this exceptional man” stated Myrna Santos Mayor, North American Director for Lustau. “On behalf of the entire team at Bodegas Lustau and the Luis Caballero Group we wish to express our sincere appreciation for your outpouring of affection and kind condolences extended to us during this difficult time.”

Manuel Lozano is survived by his wife and three sons.'
