Julien Hamou Lopez's grandfather, the pioneer of this winemaking tradition, wasn't your typical Ribera del Duero producer. After planting vines in Coruña del Conde in 1970, he spent the next 40 years honing his skills in French wine and barrel making. Upon returning to Spain in 1990, he brought a wealth of experience and a deep respect for nature. This philosophy guided him as he transformed his family's 8 hectares into a unique biodiverse farm with sustainable practices. Unlike many in the region using commercial methods, his goal was to create "living wines" that expressed the character of the grapes and the land.

This dedication to minimal intervention and natural practices likely extends to the wines produced from these grapes, including Vin Rouge Kiffe.
