The aim of Bodegas Bhilar is to make wines with soul from the terroir and share them with people with positive energy. Bodegas Bhilar is a small boutique winery located in Elvillar, Rioja Alavesa, run by husband and wife, David Sampedro and Melanie Hickman. Their goal is to make wines with soul from the terroir, respecting the land, working only with local grapes, and sharing their unique wines with good people and positive energy.
In 1999, David became interested in and learned about the biodynamic philosophy, changing the vision of and how to care for his vineyards. First, he converted to organic farming and then began to apply that knowledge in order to restore harmony between man, earth, vines and the cosmos. In 2014, tractors were phased out and horses returned to work the vineyards.
Installations: The new minimum intervention cellar was completed in 2016. Sustainable design: using solar energy and built partially underground, with concrete fermentation tanks (to help control temperature) and French wooden vats.
