Behind every great wine stands a passionate vintner. Faust Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is the creation of Agustin Huneeus and satisfies a long held desire on his part to produce a wine that embodies the most seductive characteristics of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.

Faust, the wine, celebrates a legend which has inspired many great minds, among them the German poet Goethe, from whose masterpiece we draw our inspiration. In Goethe’s most famous work, the aging scholar Dr. Faust barters his soul in the afterlife in exchange for another chance at youth. He gets his chance, yet ultimately his soul is saved by love.

Born in Santiago, Chile, Agustin Huneeus began his career there and is one of the few vintners who has dedicated his entire professional life to the wine industry. After over 40 years in wine, he continues to be involved in multiple projects spanning many of the new world’s top appellations. Perhaps best known today for creating Quintessa, the luxury wine and wine estate he and wife Valeria own in Rutherford, Napa Valley, the Huneeus family also owns Veramonte, the fine wine estate he created in Casablanca Valley, Chile in the 1990’s – leading the way for the discovery of the region’s winemaking potential. In partnership with his son Agustin Francisco, Agustin launched Huneeus Vintners in 2005, a company dedicated to building a family-owned portfolio of fine wine estates. Faust, our Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon launched in early 2006 is the newest addition to this portfolio.

Huneeus is recognized as a driving force behind the concept of terroir in the United States, insisting that it is the place that the grapes are grown, rather than the varietal, which gives wine its character and personality. The philosophy that great vineyards make great wine has been his guiding principle in the many projects he has taken on since moving to California. Agustin’s vast and diverse experience has led to other strongly held beliefs about the future of the wine business. He believes that “brands” play a minor role in the high end of the business; that it is place and type that the consumer truly seeks. He also believes that numerical ratings, as they are used today, are an aberration.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
