The Monteviejo Domain belongs to the French family Péré-Vergé, they are also the owner of Château Montviel, Château La Graviére, Château Le Gay and Château La Violette in Pomerol, Bordeaux. Monteviejo is part of the famous "Clos de Los Siete" (association of members of the largest winegrowing families in France).
The winery of Monteviejo, built in 2001 on the estate of Clos de Los Siete, produced its first cuvée in 2002. The property, located in Vista Flores, Tunuyán, Uco Valley, 120 km south of the city of Mendoza, extends over 130ha at an altitude of between 1000 and 1200m. The vineyard benefits from favourable climatic and geographical conditions: the sloping vineyards, facing north and east, enjoy the best sun exposure in the southern hemisphere.
The stony and poor soil is ideal for the vine. The varieties of grape varieties grown are mainly Malbec, emblematic grape variety of Argentina, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Petit Verdot and Chardonnay. The selected clones, of low yield and high quality, are of French origin. For Malbec, old native vines, with excellent soil adaptability like no other in the world, have been selected.
In the vineyard, particular care is given to each grape to ensure quality. The vinification is done in the respect of the tradition of the wine: manual harvesting and absence of fertilizer.
Monteviejo is run by Marcelo Pelleriti renowned in the oenological world and trained by Michel Rolland. Marcello Pelleriti, nicknamed ``Rock Star of Pomerol in Bordeaux`` where he is also a consultant, under his supervision he allowed two prestigious domains to reach the mark of 99/100 (Château Le Guay 2010) and 100/100 (Château La Violette) of Robert Parker for the 2010 vintage.
