The first activities of Montes vineyard began in 1987. Two partners with great illusions, Aurelio Montes and Douglas Murray, both holding long-standing experience in the wine industry, were certain Chile could improve on the quality it was producing at the time. In 1988, another two original partners joined in, Alfredo Vidaurre and Pedro Grand, each providing their qualified, complimentary views, and thus, Viña Montes was formally born.
In December 2004, Montes inaugurated their new winery at Apalta, in the Colchagua Valley. A cellar that becomes a qualitative production leap for one of the most applauded Montes red wines: Montes Alpha and the Ultra Premium Montes Alpha M and Montes Folly in addition to the recently launched Purple Angel. This cellar holds state-of-the art technology, equipment and design, and the capacity of producing the finest Chilean wines.
Pure Pinot Noir heaven from the famed Casablanca Valley. This wine has 6 months of aging in French oak and a very soft filtering. Aurelio is proud of this wine’s strong varietal character and great complexity.
