Founded in 1987 in the Curicó Valley as Discover Wine, this highly successful premium wine producer has since moved its center of operations to the renowned Apalta sector of Colchagua and changed its name to Montes, after its star winemaker and owner. Known for its deep, rich, concentrated, oaky red wines and crisp whites (most also oaked), every bottle has a stylized angel on the label. The new gravity-flow winery—launched in 2004—was designed according to feng shui
principles. If you are feeling light-headed after the tasting, their restaurant Bistro Alfredo serves typical Chilean cuisine overlooking water features and the hillside. There is also a more active wine tour which involves a mountain hike followed by a picnic and wine tasting at the summit.
