Roberto De La Mota is one of the most acclaimed winemakers in Argentina, where he crafts wines for world-renowned Bodegas Mendel , as well as his personal project, Revancha. The combination of old vines, high-altitude terroirs and De La Mota's classical French training make for delicious, elegant, cellar worthy wines that should not be missed.
Mendel's Malbec and Malbec blends are the classic expression of old-vines Mendoza fruit, with enticing aromas of violets and ripe plums and rich, deep, mouth filling flavor. Produced from old vines in Mayor Drummond, Luján de Cuyo and Perdriel they can be enjoyed now for their luscious fruit, or allowed to mellow for many years in the classic Argentine tradition, to be savoured in the full glory of maturity. Mendel also produces brilliant Cabernet and a stunning Semillon from un-grafted 70+ year old vines that is one of Argentina's most unique white wines.
Anabelle Sielecki partnered with Roberto to transform her family’s historic 1928 vineyard into the respected estate it is today, naming it after her father, Mendel. Anabelle combines a global perspective with keen business acumen. She partnered with Roberto over 15 years ago, and her vision and entrepreneurial spirit have helped grow Mendel to the successful, sophisticated, premium winery it is today.
