Montes Wines & Cases - Vina Montes
Vina Montes from the Apalta, Marchigue and Zapallar Vineyards.
At The Fine Wine Company we are proud to stock a great range of quality Chilean wines from Vina Montes.
Montes began life as the passion of four individuals on a mission to produce exceptionally high quality Chilean wines. It was their drive and enthusiasm for this venture that led to Chilean wine becoming well respected and desired in the World's markets. Today Montes wine is sold in over 100 countries, an incredible feat considering the relative youthfulness of the Montes vineyards.
It was with their very fist wine, their Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon, that Vina Montes began gaining recognition almost straight away in 1987. With this Cabernet Sauvignon Montes managed to grab the World's attention and focus it directly on Chile. Growth and investment in Chile's quality wineries sky-rocketed and went from 14 exporting vineyards to over 200 today.
Today Montes continues to produce wonderful premium wines in keeping with their traditions and international reputation. Great care is taken over the management of their vineyards to ensure that only small yields are produced meaning that the grape juice is more concentrated. This is the backbone of Montes premium wines and their expert winemaker Aurelio Montes says that "80% of good wine comes from the vineyards and only 20% from the cellar."
At The Fine Wine Company you can shop for a wide range of Vina Montes, all available to purchase in cases and some in individual bottles. You will find a great selection of grape varieties represented in the Vina Montes wine range including Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Malbec amongst others.
