Mendel Winery

Mendel Winery embodies the union of Roberto de la Mota - one of Argentina's most respected and experienced winemakers with a nearly century-old Argentine family, whose sole objective is to produce wine of unquestionable, superior quality.

Proprietor and longtime wine lover, Anabelle Sielecki, diligently tracked down the very best talent Argentina had to offer when seeking Mendel's winemaker, and with utmost charm and perseverance, brought Roberto de la Mota on board. Roberto, son of legendary winemaker Raul de la Mota, has an impressive winemaking record and a lifetime of winemaking education and practice. 

Vineyards

Both Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon arrived in Mendoza, Argentina, in the mid-19th century.

Both were exceptionally adapted, but it was undoubtedly that Malbec from old selections that spread the most. It was planted on trellises facing north-south and with a high planting density of 5,555 plants per hectare. Careful work on the foliage together with controlled irrigation during the cycle allows us excellent sun exposure, a reduced number of bunches, and medium-sized berries. In this way, we ensure excellent concentration, intensity, and quality in all grapes.

It is1928 Malbec vineyards and Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards are located in Perdriel and Mayor Drummond, Luján de Cuyo. They also have Cabernet Franc, Semillon, Petit Verdot, Malbec, and Cabernet Sauvignon in  Finca Remota vineyards located in Paraje Altamira, Valle de Uco. The vineyards are located between 900 and 1,150 meters above sea level, in the best and highest irrigated lands of Luján de Cuyo and Valle de Uco, Mendoza.

Winemaker

Roberto likes to joke that he was born in a winery since his education and oenological training began long before he studied at the National University of Cuyo. He took his first steps under the guidance of his father, the most famous Argentine winemaker, Don Raúl de la Mota. After completing his studies in Montpellier, France, and managing one of the most important wineries in the country, Roberto was able to fulfill the dream of his own winery since 2002 with Mendel Wines.
