Montes Wines was established in 1988 after the addition of two further partners, Alfredo Vidaurre and Pedro Grand to the original visionary partners, Aurelio Montes and Douglas Murray. Murray and Montes both had extensive experience in the world of wine and wished to make their dream come true of being the people responsible for raising the bar for the quality of wine production in Chile. The four men all made exemplary contributions to creating and establishing 'Discover Wine Ltda' now known as Viña Montes.
Aurelio Montes has since said of their venture "The Viña Montes adventure was almost a retirement project for us. We wanted to make a small, boutique-type vineyard to entertain ourselves the day we were definitely retired and that would also allow us to show off good wines in international markets". It is certainly fair to say that success arrived for Viña Montes and we are delighted to have their wines on our shelves today.
Purple Angel is one of the pinnacles of the premium range from Montes. A highly sought after and critically acclaimed wine with James Suckling scoring the past three vintages 98+ points.
