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. 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 nest French oak. Ancient vineyards, passionate people, experience, and friendship are blended to create our remarkable wines. The climate is desert-like and continental, with well-demarcated seasons throughout the year. With scarce rainfall, under 200 mm per year, viticulture requires irrigation, which is carried out in an especially unique way in this region. “Artisan ood irrigation,” originally practiced by native tribes permits us to control phylloxera in original-rootstock vineyards and to achieve adequate vigor; with low yields and the grape concentration we seek. 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.
