  • ABOUT PRODUCER

    One of the most respected winemakers in southeast Spain, Pepe Mendoza started his carrier at his family's winery Enrique Mendoza. They were among the first to plant Syrah and other international varieties in the region to make high quality reds, but they gradually returned to work with local grapes, specially Monastrell. His latest project is Casa Agrícola, a very personal project launched alongside his wife Pepa Agulló.
