A brief history
The new winery began to be built in April 2009 and the first elaboration was made in March / April 2010. The winery was completed in its tourist part and inaugurated on April 16, 2011.
It consists of two main wings: processing and aging. It also has administrative offices, a reception center for visitors and a tasting room with two terraces, one facing east and the vineyards and the other facing west overlooking the Andes Mountains. The total covered and semi-covered area is 1000 square meters.
The processing wing is equipped with the most advanced technology, reaching a total capacity of 120 m3 (1200 HL). The stainless tanks have cooling and heating jackets. The guard wing contains French and American oak barrels where the wines complete their elaboration. All this within rigorously controlled temperature conditions.
MEVI is an agribusiness venture founded by two business friends: Oscar Vignart and Rolando Meninato in 1991 to produce high quality grapes and wines.
In 2005 Mevi bought a new vineyard in Maipú. This farm is located in one of the best areas of Mendoza for its climate, with a daily temperature variation of 15 ° C, irrigated with water from the Andes and a clay soil with abundant gravel.
We launched our first harvest on the market in 2002 and since then its main destination has been exports. The wines are made mainly with grapes from our estate, all selected by our winemaker, offering you the line of wines that are marketed with the MEVI label.
