The Pere Verge family, more than just being owners of Monteviejo, Chateau Le Gay and Chateau La Violette, are a family devoted to making exceptional wines of terroir, power and elegance. Following the hemispheric seasons, winemaker Marcelo Pelleritti and his team are producing world class wines both in Mendoza and Bordeaux.
Marcelo Pelleritti is today one of the great references of winemaking in Argentina and on an international level. He is a young professional, who learned at the right hand of Michel Rolland how to interpret the vineyard and make wines that stand out in the world. Currently he is the manager and winemaker at Monteviejo, a member of Clos de los 7..
For the last 14 years he has directed the harvests in Bordeaux at Chateau La Violette and Chateau Le Gay, (both also properties of Catherine Peré-Vergé like Monteviejo). Every September and October, Pelleriti goes to France for the harvest after having managed our harvest season at Monteviejo.
This experience made him the first Argentine winemaker to obtain a 100 point rating from Robert Parker's magazine with a French wine and, at the same time, obtain high scores for Argentine wines.
