  • The vina Montes is located in the Colchagua Valley, near the wine route. His winery is modern and constructed following the principles of Feng Shui. Its vineyards are beautiful. We had lunch at the Bistro, we took advantage of the sunny and warm day to stay in the external tables, already proving some wines. The dishes were good but I confess that the best thing was to be there enjoying the whole landscape. We did a tour and tasting that traveled only the main building of the winery, our guide was super nice and always willing to take our doubts. Our tasting was held in a room of glass that is in front of the tank where the aging wines in oak casks listening to Gregorian chant. For me the wine 03 we went (montes, RE and Clos Apalta) was to be the best tasting the level of explanation. In my opinion worth sleeping at least one night in the region to take advantage of the better wineries.
