26338 San Vicente de la Sonsierra. La Rioja.
Foundation year: 1988

The winery was founded in 1988 by Abel Mendoza and his wife Maite Fernández. In less than a decade they went from producing exclusively young wine to researching and innovating in vinification and aging. The first important results came with the white wine 1998 and the Abel Mendoza Selección Personal 1998. They have recovered very limited production monovarietals white wines that ferment in wood.

The 18 hectares of vineyards of the property are planted on the left bank of the Ebro river, in front of Sierra de Cantabria and between the municipalities of San Vicente de la Sonsierra, Ábalos and Labastida. The croplands are rugged and varied in composition, alternating clay soils, marls and fine sandstones. They have planted red varieties, with an average age of 35 years,  like Tempranillo (16 ha), Graciano (0.6 ha) and Grenache (0.2 ha). White varieties, with an average of 26 years old, like Malvasía, Viura, Torrontés and White Grenache occupy an extension of 1,2 ha. The planting density and the pruning system generates yields of 5,500 kg / ha. The geographical position of its vineyards allows to enjoy an ideal climate to obtain excellent grapes: rainfall of 480 mm per year and 2,100 hours of sunshine per year, the average temperature of the vegetative cycle is 16ºC and the day-night interval in the ripening period is 28 to 12ºC.

      €23.90

      In 1992, Abel Mendoza and his wife Maite Fernández began to make and bottle a very small production of unique white wines with historical Rioja grape varieties, leading a new way in the region. The first vintages did not please the Denomination of Origin that reprochaed them for using not allowed varieties. Almost 20 years later, these wines are an object of desire. They have opened new doors to allow other wine growers to recover this heritage.
