About MENDEL Wines

Founded in 2003, the winery is named after Mendel, father of four and grandfather of eleven. After he passed away, his children decided to honor him and therefore named this beautiful project Mendel Wines. As a result of this tribute, both Roberto and the Sielecki family have a strong commitment in producing high end wines.

According to Roberto, “At Mendel we are fully dedicated to producing wines of unquestionable superior quality with labor-intensive work as for example handpicking all grapes. We have vineyards in a few different locations. One of our oldest ones, a 92-year-old vine in Lujan de Cuyo, is where we get our fabulous Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec. Recently we got the Organic certification which takes us to the next level of modernity. Additionally, we have Finca Remota, a beautiful vineyard in Altamira. This is one of the most well-known districts of Uco Valley with vineyards providing high-end grapes for the production of superb wines. Consequently, all the applied winemaking techniques are meticulously designed and implemented.”
