The foundation of Bodegas Castillo de Mendoza goes back to the year 1994, when the Mendoza family, descendant of several generations of vine growers, decided to resume the family tradition and fulfill one of their dreams: to open their own winery.
The winery and its vineyards are located in the Rioja town of San Vicente de la Sonsierra, of which the family is native, located in La Rioja Alta and recognized throughout the world for the extraordinary quality of its wines and its centuries-old winemaking tradition. Castillo de Mendoza opens its doors to all those in love with the world of wine who wish to come and visit us and taste our wines.
For Castillo de Mendoza viticulture is one of the most important parts of the process of making their wines, because it considers that to make a quality wine is necessary to have an excellent raw material, in this case the grape. For some years the winery has chosen Ecological Agriculture as a way of cultivation, giving rise to high quality organic wines that are being recognized in important national and international contests.
The winery currently has 7 lines of wine:
- Chirimendo Maceración Carbónica
- Vitarán Blanco Cepas Viejas
- Vitarán Tinto Crianza
- Noralba Crianza de Agricultura Ecológica
- Castillo de Mendoza Autor Ecológico
- Castillo de Mendoza Reserva
- Evento Alta Expresión de Autor.
