David Sampedro Gil is a biodynamic wine maker in Rioja Alavesa, where he has been farming biodynamically since 1999. Cultivating native varieties, he tends to his vines with the utmost care; replacing tractors for horses and eliminating the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides. He promotes biodiversity in his vineyard, leaving his plots looking wild and almost overgrown; a rewilding practice, reviving the overworked and chemical polluted soils. His sustainable approach doesn’t stop in the vineyard but extends to his solar powered cellar and winery.
100% Tempranillo from old shrubs planted in 1925, grown in compliance with the regulations of biodynamic cultivation. It is matured for 6 years before bottling. The nose is dominated by aromas of red fruit and herbs, balsamic, dried fruit & nuts.
