Art has most definitely found a place of its own in the amazing world of wine-making, one which we see today reflected in the elegant collection of wine bottle labels that are powerful icons of modern society. These labels have become precious and sought after art objects and they play an important role as symbols and ambassadors of the cultural and spiritual values ​​of the land that bears the grapes.
Quite an artistic challenge.

This year, during Art Basel week in Miami Beach, Art:pMiami celebrates  the Monteviejo winery @Studio73 for its original use of art on the labels of its premium wine Monteviejo. Located at the foothill of the Andes mountains in the province of Mendoza in Argentina,   and under the care of  Catherine Péré-Vergé, art lover and owner of the winery, the art of wine–making and the art of the brush and palette have been ingeniously honored in a unique collection of wines that commemorate the Bicentennial of the country’s independence. For the occasion, Mme. Péré-Vergé called upon Master Antonio Segui to imagine and create a label that would express the cry of freedom that was sounded in the month of May, two hundred years ago.

“a precious legacy, a small, great work of art with each bottle … with love from the artist”

Antonio Segui was born in Cordoba Argentina in 1934. From 1951 to 1954, he traveled through Europe and Africa and became a visiting student at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando in Madrid and the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris,  where he studied painting and sculpture. He had his first solo exhibition in Argentina in 1957. He lives and works in Paris since 1963 and has participated in several collective and solo shows in recent years. Monteviejo Malbec
