We visited the Mendel winery on one of our first visits to Mendoza about 18 years ago. The winery was introduced to us by our friend Paulo Costa, who was then President of Novartis Pharmaceuticals. Mendel Winery was started by a well known Buenos Aires pharmaceutical family with Roberto de la Mota, known as one of Argentina’s greatest wine makers. The Mendels began the winery with the intent of making great wines that were more refined than what was found in Mendoza. We fell in love with their Cabernet which was powerful, yet not overwhelming. We still find it one of the best, most accessible and harmonious Cabernets made in Mendoza.
