The owners, John Overstreet and Neil Perrelli, were friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. Villa del Monte is a relatively small, boutique winery but the quality of the operation is surpassed only by the quality of the wine. I am particularly fond of the 2006 Merlot Reserve and the 2010 Malbec. The former is a perfectly aged, smooth wine with a rich burgundy color. The latter is a full-bodied wine with robust tannins.
