The critically acclaimed Monteviejo winery lies in Vista Flores, Tunuyán, in the heart of the Uco Valley. The magnificent winery, on its 321-acre property, is nestled along the foot of the Andes Mountains, which provides a scenic backdrop worthy of the quality and pedigree of the wines Monteviejo produces. The estate’s owners, the Péré Vergé family, and winemaker Marcelo Pelleriti, are devoted to making exceptional wines of power, elegance, and typicity that consistently garner top reviews and wine enthusiasts around the world. The winery is currently adapting their vineyard and winery practices to be 100% organic.
From the beginning, Monteviejo has operated the winery around gentle handling of the grapes. Harvest is manual. In the vineyards, low-production, high-quality French clones were chosen.
