The history of Montes seems like a dream, and that’s truly how it began, gradually becoming reality. It was in 1987 that our two original founders, Aurelio Montes and Douglas Murray, both highly experienced wine professionals, wanted to realize their dream of producing Chilean wines a quantum-leap higher in quality than the standards of the time. It was a dream come true, which succeeded in taking Montes wines from nowhere to more than 100 countries worldwide; by making ‘first growth’ wines respected and admired by the world’s critics and trade, and by drawing attention to what Chile was capable of producing.

Perhaps the most satisfying thing for us at Montes has been achieving all of this on our own, without having to seek out joint-ventures or consultancies with foreign companies. We are proud that Montes is the incredibly successful result of a 100% Chilean effort; through our own ‘blood, sweat and tear´.
