Melanie Hickman, a North American native, fell in love with a Spaniard and changed the path of her life. A lover of nature and wine, both of which can be found in Alava, Melanie decided to settle in Rioja Alavesa, combine her passions and convert her dreams into her livelihood by elaborating three single-vineyard wines with the help of her husband, David Sampedro.
Limited production: 2,000 bottles. Sourced from the white limestone soils of Biodynamic estate vineyard, Hapa. This artisanal wine is hand-harvested in 10-kilo cases following a rigorous selection in the vineyard. Once in the winery, the grapes are crushed, placed in a concrete tank and undergo spontaneous fermentation with the skins for 2 months. The wine is then pressed and placed in 600L French foudres for 1 year.
