Santa Cruz, Chile
It was in 1987 when two visionaries partners, Aurelio Montes and Douglas Murray, with extensive experience in the world of wine, wanted to realize their dreams of producing wines of a quality far superior to the one that was being produced in Chile at that time. They added in 1988 the other two original partners, Alfredo Vidaurre and Pedro Grand, each making their special and complementary contribution. A dream come true, of four great visionaries, who have achieved over time, Montes and Montes Alpha wines will reach more than a hundred countries, be recognized for their extraordinary and permanent quality and, at the same time, attract the attention of the entire world about the wines that Chile can produce.
In the areas of Zapallar, Leyda and Casablanca, in Aconcagua Costa, all less than two hours driving from Santiago, the vineyards are located. The grapes develop under the influence of the sea, with cold breezes from the Pacific Ocean, which allow the vines to develop a unique elegance and character.
The winery has incorporated the latest in winemaking technology. With the collaboration of the Chilean expert Silvia Galleguillos, all the basic elements – water, metal, wood, etc. – were incorporated into the design, in accordance with the principles of the Feng Shui, ensuring harmony in a positive atmosphere. At the entrance of the construction is the wooden access path over a small lagoon whose water flows in the direction of the building.
