History

After a successful business career, Don Fransisco Montes, an immigrant from Andalucia, Spain, founded this industrial-agricultural project, known as Casa Montes Winery-Vineyards in 1992, remarking the legendary pioneer spirit of his family.

This enterprise lies in the Tulum Valley, on the banks of the San Juan River, 700 meters above sea level, at latitude 31 degrees south. The annual average temperature is 17 degrees centigrade whereas the yearly, mean precipitation is less than 200mm and the soils are described as alluvial. This oasis is situated in a privileged environment among the highest Cordilleran peaks of San Juan Province, including 160 hectares of vineyards, totally managed by trellis systems and irrigated by Andean melt-off. Our water supply is stored up in its own reservoir of approximately 35million liters for distribution by a pressurized drip-system. The entire perimetrical bounderies of the vineyards are strategically bordered and protected by a natural forest of carob trees [ceratonia siliqua]. Under these exceptional environmental conditions, the healthy and exact maturation of our diverse varietal grapes is achieved by Casa Montes, distinguished by Viognier and Chardonnay [examples of some whites] and Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Tannat among reds.

As a complement to its agricultural potency, Casa Montes Winery-Vineyards boasts a vanguard winery with state-of -the-art technology, whose capacity exceeds 2,000,000 liters, utilizing 100% stainless steel tanks and a completely automatic system for temperature and pumping control, which allows for absolute control of all production processes of the important, diversity in our line of wines.

Casa Montes Winery-Vineyards artfully blends the nobility and tradition of a San Juan family who produce wines with a passion rarely seen today.

The entire estate is irrigated by Andean stream melt-off, which is reserved in its own reservoir of approximately 35 million liters , for distribution by means of a pressurized drip system.

Winemaking

The capacity of Casa Montes Winery exceeds 2,000,000 liters, utilizing 100% stainless steel tanks, two rotary winemakers, and two pneumatic wine presses. The technology used is French and we of capable of processing 150,000 kg of grapes daily.

 

Our installations are constructed with insulating panels in order to maintain a constant temperature of approximately 18 degrees centigrade. The wines are bottled in their own lines utilizing the 'latest' technology available producing 3,000 bottles per hour, while complying with all the standards of quality control as required.

 

During the harvest our grapes are carefully cut by hand, requiring approximately 120 seasonal workers contracted solely for this purpose. Our white grapes are only cut in the early morning hours to avoid the high afternoon temperatures.
