A brief history
Monteviejo winery is situated at the foot of the Andes mountains in the heart of the Uco Valley. One of the most important wine regions in Argentina, it is 120kms from Mendoza city in Vista Flores, Tunuyán, located within the Clos de los Siete group of wine properties. The property spans 130 hectares with altitudes between 1000 and 1200 meters above sea level.
The land has northern and eastern facing slopes, which give them a better exposure to the Southern Hemisphere sun.
Construction for the winery started at the beginning of 2001, and the first harvest was in 2002. With a surface area of 8500m2, Monteviejo has a gravity system with a double selection table for bunches and grapes. The objective of that is to transport the best raw material without using pumps, taking care not to damage the grapes in any part of the process. From the harvest to bottling, including passing through oak aging in barrels, the wine continues in its natural direction…
Using only the force of the weight of the grapes to move them from above to below.
