Producer Profile

Coruna del Conde

Julien Hamou Lopez's grandfather defied convention as a Ribera del Duero winemaker. Planting vines in Coruña del Conde in 1970, he spent 40 years honing his craft in French wine and barrel making. Upon returning to Spain in 1990, he brought back not just experience but a profound reverence for nature. Guided by this philosophy, he transformed his family's 8 hectares into a biodiverse farm, prioritizing "living wines" that echoed the grapes and the land's essence. In 2013, Julien took the reins after his father's passing, continuing the family legacy alongside his wife Angelica and cousins. Their vineyards, boasting vines over a century old (with the youngest at 23), reflect their commitment to natural practices.
