There is scarcely any passion without struggle
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.
Her mission is to rescue old vines with high quality grapes, convert the land to Biodynamic farming, and create single vineyard wines. Each wine is an expression of the vineyard, passion, care and dreams fulfilled. All with a focus on nature and respect for the environment.
