Monteviejo

Uco Valley

Overview

With one of the most accomplished winemakers in Argentina, Marcello Pelleriti, also the head winemaker for Chateau le Gay in Pomerol, Monteviejo is well-known for its high scoring wines; their Lindaflor earned 93 points from Wine Spectator internationally. To add to the winery's fame - it is owned by one of the most influential French women in wine, Catherine Péré-Vergé. It is a key winery in the famed Clos de los Siete family, run by Michel Rolland. 

But enough name dropping, let's get on to the wine. 

Beautiful on the outside but functional on the inside, the large winery has simple and rational design to make fine wines with minimal inconvenience. The tourist route is oriented around the outside circuit of the winery to give visitors a view into the winery but allow the winemakers to focus on winemaking at all times.

Monteviejo produce French-style blends as well as some single varieties which are sold domestically but primarily out of Argentina.

Every summer the winery holds a special wine and music event called Monteviejo Wine Rock, first organized by Pelleriti to invite locals and tourists to enjoy two of his favorite passions - wine and rock and roll. Other Argentine winemakers and rock lovers join in on the concert and it attracts some of the best rock musicians in Argentina.

Wine to try: Their Lindaflor Malbec is wonderfully elegant and rich.

Facilities & features

Monteviejo was built under the premise of integrating and harmonizing the building with the natural scenery, without interrupting or limiting the impressive view of the Andes Mountain. It was built in 2001 and the first vintage was in 2002. Catherine Péré Vergé, the owner, also owns from 1985 Château Montviel, Château La Graviére, Château Le Gay and Château La Violette in Pomerol, France.
