Faust is a 110-acre estate in Coombsville, in the eastern foothills south of Atlas Peak. Faust was founded by Agustin Huneeus, a native of Chile and a highly experienced vintner. He has produced wine in more than fifteen countries, and in the United States is known for creating Quintessa in Rutherford. He is also the longtime Chairman and CEO of Icon Estates, formerly Franciscan Vineyards. The Faust estate produces several Cabernet-based wines, but the flagship is simply called Faust, based on the German Faust legend made famous by the poet Goethe. Faust has earned ratings in the low- to mid-90s.
