Montes - 4th World's Best Vineyards 2020
In 1987, Aurelio Montes, the first winemaker from Viña Undurraga, decided to walk out of his laboratory and founded Discover Wine Ltda with his partner, Douglas Murray. They were joined by Alfredo Vidaurre & Pedro Grand in 1988 and Viña Montes was created. What started off as a retirement project for the 4 pioneers, a boutique winery with a small production of 3,000 cases, rapidly grew and became the pride of Chilean wines. With vineyards located at Colchagua Valley, Aconcagua Coast, Itata Valley, Maule Valley & Island of Chiloe, Montes is now available in over 100 countries worldwide.
Their very first wine, Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon was an immediate success and was also the first truly premium wine exported out of Chile. Fortunately for us, Montes Alpha was not alone on the Chilean cult wine list. Several Montes labels have gained the cult status over the years.
1996 – Montes Alpha M, classic Bordeaux style
2000 – Montes Folly, 100% Syrah, very limited production
2005 – Montes Purple Angel, first premium Chilean Carmenere
This year, Montes is celebrating its 30th anniversary by releasing a limited edition Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon, 2018 vintage. Aurelio Montes Junior, Chief Winemaker, has named this as the 'Petit Montes Alpha M'. Made using grapes from the same vineyards meant for Alpha M in Apalta Valley & Marchigue Valley, aged for 12 months in oak with a small portion of Cabernet Franc. This special blend is unlike the all-time favorite Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon 2018. Grab yours before they are all gone!
Great selection of wines, quick response by their friendly staff. Wines were always delivered chilled and on time. My most trusted online shop!

Easy to navigate, user friendly site. Tried to contact them using the WhatsApp chat & got a reply almost immediately.
I was in Singapore during a short business trip and wanted to bring some wines back. The wines were delivered promptly during my stay and packed nicely. Good job!
Engaged them for a corporate event and everything was organized nicely. Professional staff with good wine knowledge, everyone enjoyed the session.
