Pepe Mendoza is the star winemaker of DO Alicante, on the southern part of Spain’s Mediterranean coast. He is responsible for his family’s label, named for his father, Enrique. Of late, he has also developed a smaller, personal project, in conjunction with his wife, Pepa.
Pepe Mendoza Casa Agricola represents a transition for Pepe, beyond what is possible in the larger family project. Specifically, the aim is to utilise the opportunity afforded by low-cropped old vines to make wines with minimal intervention.
