Anselmo Mendes is recognised not only for the excellence of the wines he produces but also for the surprising and consistent way he innovates. Combining the use of age-old techniques, such as fermentation on skins, with bold winemaking methods such as the fermentation of Alvarinho in oak casks, he is established in Portugal and abroad with an original design and his own identity.
Anselmo Mendes wines are the result of a long, faithful connection to the land, an experimentalist and studious spirit and a philosophy of respect for the ecosystem that translates into methods of integrated production.
Currently, Anselmo Mendes market footprint includes more than thirty references. His wines have won awards and are respected nationally and internationally in 40 countries.
On Thursday, 4th of March, at the Grandes Escolhas magazine Awards ceremony, Anselmo Mendes has received the award for “Senhor do Vinho” (“Wine Lord”), a recognition for his path and work for over three decades as winemaker and producer.
