Mendel Winery embodies the partnership of one of Argentina’s
most respected and experienced winemakers -Roberto de la Mota- with an established Argentine family. Together we are dedicated to producing wines of unquestionable superior quality expressing the quality and character of our very old Malbec and Cabernet vineyards in Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza, Argentina.
Roberto de la Mota
We choose the best lots from our old vineyards, and pay rigorous attention to every detail of the artisan winemaking process: from selecting parcels and picking grapes to fermentation
in small tanks and aging wines in the finest French oak. Ancient vineyards, passionate people, experience and friendship are blended to create our remarkable wines.
Weather | Location | Terroir
At an altitude of 1,000 meters above sea level, the warmest days in the area can reach 33° C, but at night temperatures never rise above 17° C. The temperature swings have an important effect on the quantity and quality of the grapes’ polyphenols.
We also have Cabernet Franc, Semillon, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon at Finca Remota vineyards. Vineyards are between 900 and 1,150 meters above sea level, on the highest well-irrigated land in Luján de Cuyo and Valle de Uco, Mendoza.
