The winery at Spanish wine producer Pepe Mendoza

Pepe Mendoza Casa Agrícola

Pepe Mendoza Casa Agrícola is a family winery run by Pepe Mendoza – son of Enrique Mendoza who has been making wine in the Alicante region since the 1970s – with the help of his wife Pepa, their three children and dachshunds Lola and Syrah. Based in the village of Llíber, sustainability, respect and tradition are at the heart of Pepe’s approach and he is passionate about local grape varieties and winemaking techniques that have been handed for generations ever since the time of the Romans.

In Pepe’s words, the project is all about ¨two terroirs, one landscape¨, and the vineyards are split between two main areas: the low-lying, more coastal county (comarca in Spanish) of Marina Alta behind the tourist towns of Dénia and Javea, and the higher area of Alto Vinalopó which is about 100km further inland. The 12-hectare Abargues estate surrounds the bodega in Llíber and is planted with historic Mediterranean varieties like Muscat of Alexandria, Giró, Monastrell or Alicante Bouschet, as well as Macabeo or Airén.
