This small winery is owned by Abel Mendoza (vine growing) and Maite Fernández (winemaking), a husband and wife team based in San Vicente de la Sonsierra. Their wines are among the most interesting, rare and sought-after in Rioja. Established in 1988, the winery owns 17 hectares of organic vines in San Vicente and adjoining villages. They do not seek to stamp the wines with any particular style or mark of their own other than his respect for the very natural quality of the grapes and for the magical places that they were grown. The best Tempranillo plot is selected each vintage to make Abel Mendoza Selección Personal. Fermented in steel tanks, the wine is matured in new French barrels for 13 months. A very classy and compelling wine, it has an intense bouquet of crushed fruits, spice and oak. Elegant oak aging enhances the wine’s complexity and class. Food pairing: Ibérico ham, pork sausage, pasta with tomato sauce and mushrooms.
