Rodrigo Faustini started this petition to Huneeus Vintners

Huneeus Vintners is demanding that Faustini Wines (FW) stop using our family name, "Faustini", as the winery name.

Huneeus hired a law firm with over 1,000 lawyers, threatened to sue FW, and has asked the Trademark Office to cancel FW's trademark. Their lawyer claims that the consumer is so naive that the think FW has something to do with their Faust brand of wine...

FW has used the family name for business since it started it over a decade ago, and they don’t really know what they would call themselves if they could not use the Faustini name. Huneeus has known about them for many years. It is hard for them to miss FW: they belong to the same trade association, they follow each others’ social media, and their offices are only four miles from FW's.

What is most disappointing to FW is that the wine community in Napa Valley is very close-knit. They cooperate with each other and when there is a problem they discuss it. But Huneeus Vintners did not do that here: they simply hired a 1,000 lawyer law firm to bludgeon FW into dropping our family name.

If you agree that this is ridiculous, we’d ask you to let them know. You can post on their Facebook page (www.facebook.com/faustwine.napa) send them a tweet (@HuneeusVintners @faustwine #FreeFaustini), or send them an e-mail at service@huneeuswines.com. You can also sign this petition and share it with your friends. Hopefully, with your support, they will realize that trying to force FW to stop using their family name is simply unacceptable!
