Montes, Chile

Below are the details for Montes, Chile.

Winery Name: Montes, Chile
established 1988
Winemaker(s): Aurelio Montes
Other Details: Montes was established in 1988 by four partners with years of experience in the art of winemaking and in the wine trade.

Our philosophy was, from day one, to produce premium quality wines from Chile. A level of quality that we felt was absent at the time. Premium wines that quickly became the standard to follow, such as MONTES and MONTES ALPHA, and now with ultra-premiums like MONTES ALPHA "M" (after Murray) and MONTES FOLLY, also the pioneers in the ultra-premium category.

And follow they did! Not only did the large established wineries create premium wines to compete with MONTES ALPHA but many producers decided to try their luck exporting bottled wines. Wine exporters, as a result, went from about 10 to well over 100 wineries now.

With 5 Estates, three in Curicó and two in Colchagua ("La Finca de Apalta" in Apalta and our new "El Arcangel de Marchigüe" in Marchigüe), totalling nearly 600 Hectares of vineyards with varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Carmenère, Petit Verdot, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc -with Syrah and Pinot Noir producing for the first time, experimentally, in 1999 and in fuller scale in 2000 - Montes wines are mainly exported (95% of total production) to over 60 countries in the five continents.
