The name FAUST is based on an old German legend. The name is a tribute to Dr. Faust, a man described in the German poet Goethes’ work. In the story, Dr. Faust was tempted by the Devil to exchange his soul in return for youth, energy and passion.
Throughout Agustin’s wine career, and it has been a long one, he has always been associated with wines that showcase great vineyard sites – wines that directly reflect the individual terroir of a specific vineyard location. And that is part of the viticulture story of FAUST – to ultimately highlight Cabernet Sauvignon from multiple vineyard locations within the Napa Valley. However, the core vineyard for FAUST is 121 acres in Coombsville off of Coombsville Road – approximately 100 acres planted primarily to Cabernet Sauvignon but with smaller plantings of Merlot, Petit Verdot, Syrah and a tiny block of Sauvignon Blanc. The Huneeus family purchased this property in 1998, formerly the site of Lewis Dairy.
