1996. In 2007, Nicholas Hammeken, who already had experience in marketing and selling wine in various European countries, opened his own company. At first, the company was simply selling and reselling other wineries’ wines, but then, in 2001, the company started to grow. In 1999, they created their first wine range. The company follows the latest global trends to produce wines of very high quality and relatively affordable prices from local Spanish grape varieties.

Making wine

30+ year old shrub vines. Yield 25 hl/ha. Extreme continental climate with long hot summers. Harvesting in the second half of September. Cold maceration at 5°C for 48h, fermentation for 12-18 days at 24-28°C. Aged for 4 months in French and American oak barrels aged 1-2 years.

Tasting notes

Clear deep ruby-purple colour. Clean and distinct aromas of black cherries, strawberries, roasted coffee beans and chocolate. The fruity and juicy flavours are balanced by light vanilla and delicate milk chocolate and roasted Java beans. On the palate, the wine is smooth, full-bodied, with firm and velvety tannins and a long finish.
