Bodega Monteviejo is located at the foothill of the Andes Mountains, next to Vista Flores, south of Mendoza.
The state of the art winery, developed by Catherine Péré-Vergé, the owner, has been the most ambitious Argentinean project of the past year. Finally deciding on a particular area of land to cultivate the goal; to create wines that can compete with the world’s best.
Catherine Péré-Vergé’s father created Cristal D’arques International, one of the most important glass manufacturers in the world. She has been in charge of this giant company during all her career with her brother and sisters. She started to invest in the wine business in 1985, buying Château Montviel in Pomerol.
Then in the 90’s, she invested in Château La Gravière, Lalande de Pomerol, Chateau Le Gay in Pomerol, and also started a new project in Argentina – Bodega Monteviejo. Yields are kept low and the vineyard is vertically trained, with vines planted at a density of 5,500 vines per hectare. This configuration corresponds to the region’s traditional method of planting old vine Malbec.
Her friend Michel Rolland, the famous flying winemaker who made his fame as a consultant for boutique wineries around the world, is in charge of the operations at Bodega with Marcelo Peleritti managing the winery. The wines are a true expression of their variety, with focus on the production of Malbec and Torrontés.
