THE PASSION OF WINE
“The best wine is in the best vineyard.” – Enrique Mendoza
The winery began in the 1970s when Enrique Mendoza became extremely interested in world of wine and decided to continue the tradition in “La Marina Baixa”— of making wine for family consumption.
The winery is located in Alfaz Del Pi, southeast Spain, south of Valencia and nestled close to the shores of the Mediterranean. The principal grape variety in this area is red Monastrell which is perfectly suited for the hot Mediterranean climate.
The vines grow in thin sandy soil with limited organic matter and is a traditional vineyard with 1,500 plants per hectare.
By harvesting all the grapes from the estate vineyard, controlling irrigation, using the best techniques in viticulture, and without the use of herbicides or insecticides, only the best grapes are used to make the best wine.
