Montes is the shared vision of four friends, first dreamed up in the late 1980s, of making Chilean wines to a higher level than the world had ever seen. Now their wine is sold in more than 100 countries and they are recognised as pioneers of high-end Chilean wine. Guided tours will take you down to the cellars, where you’ll find 800 oak barrels in a spectacular semi-circular arrangement being serenaded by Gregorian chants to give the wines the optimal ageing conditions.
Yes, they certainly take their wine seriously. An immersive experience that feels more like visiting a sacred building than a vineyard, with angels adorning every wine label. A winemaking temple dedicated to excellence and a respectful celebration of the fruits of the vine. Reduced to a whisper, you wander in awe along the aisles of oak barrels, marvelling at their vision.
