The Winery



Montes was founded in 1987 by Aurelio Montes and Douglas Murray, both highly experienced wine professionals and joined by Alfredo Vidaurre and Pedro Grand in 1988. The 1987 version of this Cabernet Sauvignon was the first ‘premium’ wine to be exported from Chile, and it very quickly opened up opportunities for us and others in Chile. Then followed the cherished Alphas Chardonnay, Merlot and Syrah. From the beginning, Montes Alpha was to be a brand synonymous with premium quality from Chile.

I enjoyed it with a beef dish. My best friend had tried it and she recommended it to me.
It has a very nice colour. Good smell of coffee and toffee. The 2015 tastes a little bit oily in the mouth.

Surprising the smell of strawberries of this Montes. The truth is that I couldn't find any particular flavour, although I liked it.
A wine for special occasions.

I had it with my friends.
A very dark red and rather opaque. Main smell of roses. A Montes Twins Malbec / Cabernet Sauvignon is never a light experience.
Is to be drunk with food.
