Come meet the CEO of Mendel Winery, Diego Surazsky, all the way from Mendoza Argentina. Taste through their lineup of five wines made by legendary Argentinian Winemaker Roberto de la Mota.
Mendel is widely considered the ‘Gold Standard’ for classic Argentine wine. Proprietor and long-time wine lover, Anabelle Sielecki, partnered with Roberto to transform her family’s historic 1928 vineyard into the respected estate it is today. She honors her father, a hardworking immigrant and successful. Using his French winemaking experience, Roberto has led Argentina’s winemaking movement toward world-class production. The finesse and elegance in his wines are revered and respected.
Roberto is one of the most celebrated winemakers in Argentina, known for making prestigious and elegant wines. After classical schooling and training in France, Roberto established the Terrazzas de los Andes wine program for Bodega Chandon in 1996. After much critical acclaim, he was selected as winemaker for Cheval des Andes, an ultra-prestigious joint venture between Chandon & Bordeaux’s Chateau Cheval Blanc. He represents a balance between local and global with the unique mix of influences he has recieved at home and internationally.
