More on our Senior Wine Advisor, Marcelo Pelleriti

Algodon Wine Estates’ Senior Advisor Marcelo Pelleriti's wines have received several ratings in the 90s (some as high as 98) from Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate.  In addition to his work with Algodon, Marcelo also serves as Enologist to Bodega y Viñedos Monteviejo in Mendoza, and also serves as Enologist to Chateau La Violette, Chateau Montviel, Chateau La Graviere, and Chateau Le Gay, all located in France. 

Marcelo has mentioned that he feels Algodon Bonarda can someday amount to being rated “among the best in the world”.  Yes, in the world.  Given the often praised soil quality of Cuadro Benegas (where we are located in San Rafael, Mendoza), and Marcelo’s remarkable resume, I don’t hesitate to think that he may very well be the one to get us there.
