OUR HISTORY

FOUNDING PARTNERS

  • Montes was founded on the skills, knowledge and total commitment of its four founders. They had a very clear vision of what they wanted the company to be: the pioneer producer of premium quality Chilean wines that would meet the demands of a challenging world market. Aurelio Montes, Douglas Murray, Alfredo Vidaurre and Pedro Grand overcame the many setbacks they were to meet with enormous wisdom and strength, placing the name of Montes and Chile on the world map of quality wines. Later, they would be joined in this considerable human effort by the Garcés and Barros families, who with their solid entrepreneurial competence, long term vision, and unshakeable commitment, have combined to earn Montes the reputation the company enjoys today - one of the best known, respected and beloved producers in the world of excellent wines.
