The First Premium Wines from Chile
Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon was the first premium wine from Chile - the ground breaker - and it remains the brilliant wine it has always been. Now a legend, the Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon 1987 was our first vintage; the pioneer that showed the way to all others in Chile.It remains #1 in the Chilean premium wine niche, having proven early on our credibility as a world-class premium wine producer.
Initially, we only produced the Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon. Unique, elegant and stylish, it showed the level of excellence that Chile could achieve. Later, it was joined by Alphas Chardonnay, Merlot, the superb Syrah and the expressive Pinot Noir from Leyda Valley, and most recently, Alpha Carmenère, a very special wine from Colchagua Valley.
Many competitors have followed, but Montes Alpha wines continue to lead the way, earning a secure place in the minds of wine lovers that is hard to challenge. With prices between US$16 to $20 in the USA, all our Alpha wines have received ‘Top Scoring’ and ‘Best Value’ from the influential Wine Spectator magazine: quite an achievement for Chilean wines at that price level.
