WINERY

The winery is situated at the foot of the Andes Mountains in the heart of the Uco Valley, one of the main

viniculture regions in Argentina. It is located at a distance of 120 kilometers from the city of Mendoza in

the Clos de los Siete group of properties in Vista Flores, Tunuyán.

 

The property comprises 130 hectares (321 acres) at an altitude between 1,000 and 1,200 meters above

sea level. The land slopes towards the north and east, giving it the best exposure to sunlight in the

southern hemisphere.

 

Construction of the winery began in early 2001, and the first harvest took place in 2002.

Throughout Monteviejo, which has a total area of 8,500 square meters (91,493 feet), a gravitational

system consisting of a double conveyor belt is used to select bunches of grapes and berries. Its purpose

is to transport the raw material of wine without the use of pumps, so as to prevent damage during the

process. From harvest to bottling – passing down through barrels for aging – the wine always follows its

natural slope. It is only the weight of the grapes that is used to move them from above to below.
