智利酒莊


Montes

 Montes酒莊的老闆之一,同時也是首席釀酒師的Aurelio Montes非常有才華,天生就是當釀酒師的料,他在學生時代,便想證明位於Colchagua區的Apalta Valley是智利生產紅酒最好的地方;這個地區是丘陵與斜坡,土壤貧瘠,表層是厚厚的砂礫,平均坡度15度,最陡甚至可達45度,不過Aurelio Montes認為這裡西邊靠近海洋,東邊是山脈,日間溫暖可供葡萄成熟,夜間涼爽讓質地更為細緻,提供了完美的成長環境。
 
憑著Aurelio Montes的直覺與理想,他在Apalta的陡坡上種植Syrah品種,這也成了Montes Folly的由來。這片名為La Finca de Apalta的園地是幾乎無法耕作的山坡,更別提利用機械大量收成,如此貧瘠、整地困難、照料不易,極度仰賴人工的地方栽種葡萄,所花費的時間與昂貴代價難以計算,這樣的行為被同行認為是愚笨,而且這個地區從來沒有嘗試過種植Syrah品種,也沒有人能保證釀出來的酒是否能夠入口,但Aurelio Montes憑著多年來的狂野夢想,堅持走下去。
 
而成果是豐碩的,現在Montes是世界最大的釀酒集團之一,而且驚人的是雖然產量多,但仍能夠兼顧品質。
 
The first activities at our vineyard began in 1987. Two partners with great illusions, Aurelio Montes and Douglas Murray, both holding long-standing experience in the wine industry, were certain Chile could improve on the quality it was producing at the time. It seemed as if the large and medium-scale vineyards were satisfied with limiting their distribution to local supermarkets. They certainly knew how to produce premium wines, but didn’t feel up to it, they were satisfied with the niche markets they had attained, which was certainly broad, although small. In 1988, another two original partners joined in, Alfredo Vidaurre and Pedro Grand, each providing their qualified, complimentary views, and thus, Viña Montes was formally born, initially under the name Discover Wine Ltda., a saga that has made Chile internationally known in 75 countries worldwide while providing extensive recognition and acclaim.
