Bodegas Mendoza is a winery located in Alicante, a mediterranean region of Spain.
This winery was born thanks to the passion for wine, and the passion has never stopped growing.
The project was forged at the end of the 70’s, when Enrique Mendoza became extremely interested in the world of wine and decided to continue the tradition in “La Marina Baixa” of making wine for family consumption.
In this second location, they grow their plants with an environmental friendly technique, without using herbicides or insecticides in their vineyard. The soil is nourished in a natural way with compost made from their own cattle.
The final touches are given to their wines in the underground winery in Alfaz del Pi (Alicante), ageing the wines with a controlled temperature and humidity, in selected barrels chosen from the best forests such as Nevers, Allier, White American Missouri or White American Oregon.
As the winery says in their website:
“The best wine is in the best vineyard”
Wine is an experience.
But in order to be able to taste all of its aspects they have designed a visit around the winery in Alfaz del Pi so that those who are new to this world can discover all the pleasures of wine, and those who already know about it can discover the most technical aspects of it.
During the visit you will be able to learn about the most important aspects of the winery: the birth of wine, the process of making it, its preservation together with the guided wine tasting in the gardens where you will be tasting some of their best varieties.
