MEVI is an agro-industrial enterprise founded by two business friends: Oscar Vignart and Rolando Meninato in 1991 to produce high quality grapes and wines.
We launched our first harvest to the market in 2002 and since then its main destination has been export. The wines are made mainly with grapes from our estate, all selected by our oenologist, offering you the line of wines that are marketed under the MEVI label.
In 2005 Mevi bought a new vineyard in Maipú. This estate is located in one of the best areas of Mendoza due to its climate, with a daily temperature variation of 15°C, irrigated with water from the Andes and a clayey soil with abundant gravel.
The construction of the new winery started in April 2009 and the first production 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: production and storage. It also has administrative offices, a reception centre for visitors and a tasting room with two terraces, one facing east and the vineyards and the other west overlooking the Andes Mountains. The total covered and semi-covered area is 1000 square meters.
The winemaking wing is equipped with the most advanced technology, reaching a total capacity of 120 m3 (1200 HL). The stainless steel tanks have cooling and heating jackets. The storage wing contains French and American oak barrels where the wines complete their elaboration. All this within strictly controlled temperature conditions.
