About Hammeken Cellars
We are a modern and innovative producer of Spanish wines, with a portfolio focused on branded products developed through the understanding of consumers' needs.
Nicholas Hammeken's early interest for wine has lead him to dedicate his career and life to his passion. After finishing his studies in Copenhaguen, he collaborated in sales and marketing roles within the wine industry, in France, Germany and the UK.
In 1996 Nicholas decided to start his own venture and so Hammeken Cellars - formerly Vinnico Export - was born. Initially conceived as a non branded wine trader, their first own wine collection, Montgó, was launched in 2001. Ever since, the company has seen the succcess of other brands such as Piquitos, Allegranza, Creencia, Gotas de Mar, Pasas or Radio Boka, to name a few. In March 2014, Hammeken Cellars opened a branch overseas, from which it is conquering the US market. In the last years, the company has experienced double digit growth in sales, as well as in employees. Currently Hammeken Cellars one of the most important Spanish wine exporters +1.5 million cases of Spanish wines a year, and is present in +30 countries.
Our wines gather the best of the Spanish local grapes and traditions, with the winemaking style and techniques of the "New World". The result is a distinctive collection of wines, modern, fruit forward, fresh and easy to understand. A brand new way to understand wine, unknown in Spain, until now.

Wine in moderation
Wine has evolved as part of life, culture and diet since time immemorial. As an enduring cultural symbol of fine life, the role of wine has evolved over time, changing from an important source of nutrition to a cultural complement to food and conviviality compatible with a healthy lifestyle.
The art of viticulture and winemaking has also evolved. Nevertheless, in this long historical path, one thing remains unchanged and has never been neglected; the association of wine with gastronomy, history, tradition, origin, local quality products and dignified social settings.
Cultural appreciation of wine reflects the diversity of the wine regions, the savoir-vivre and culinary habits. Quality products incite moderate consumption patterns, as it is only by savouring wine moderately and slowly that its unique complex flavours and character can be fully appreciated and enjoyed.
