INTENSELY AROMATIC AND SHOWY’

"There is nothing better than terroir-driven wines from boutique wineries shared with good friends. Husband and wife team of David Sampedro and Melanie Hickman created Bodegas Bhilar in the Alavesa region of Rioja. Bodegas Bhilar’s goals are to make terroir-driven wines with soul, respect the land, work only with indigenous grapes, and share their unique wines with good people with positive energy. Early in his career, David worked at the larger and more traditional wineries in Rioja and realized that great wines are made in the vineyard. But he wasn’t interested in following the status quo of local winemaking styles, which often involved heavy use of new American oak; he was determined to produce a more elegant, fresh wine with a focus on the terroir of his vineyards.

The 2018 Bodegas Bhilar Lágrimas de Graciano is a rare and appealing wine – it’s a terrific 100% Graciano from Rioja Alavesa. Graciano is a lovely colored, deliciously aromatic and low-yielding grape that's indigenous to the Rioja region. Luis Gutierrez from Wine Advocate describes this wine as ‘very pleasant and easy to drink. I love it! I think you will love it to, especially at this price: just $12.99! I know I am going to be stocking up on this one, and you should too!" – Jim Knight, The Wine House

91 Points: "A few weeks later, I also tasted the just-bottled 2018 Lágrimas de Graciano. It feels like an infusion of thyme and sloes, intensely aromatic and showy, with a juicy palate and round tannins, very pleasant and easy to drink. I love it!" – Luis Gutierrez, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate (June 2019)

ABOUT BODEGAS BHILAR

Vineyards have dominated the landscape of Elvillar in the Rioja Alavesa for centuries. The limestone-rich soils, while unable to support other types of agriculture, have been vital to supporting vines which impart a certain elegance, power, and freshness to the grapes grown here.

Local native David Sampedro works at sustainable production by reducing yields and the number of conventional treatments in his stunningly pampered vineyards. The wines are vinified in Elvillar, just few kilometers from the vineyards, and they show the authentic local characteristics resulting from high-altitude, cool climate, and pure limestone soils.

Farming Practice: Practicing Biodynamic
