Montes Winery in Chile

Our experience at Montes Winery, in Chile, was one I will never forget.  It began with a simple sign to let us know we were at Montes winery. You then take a walk up to the main entrance, and along the way, there are beautiful pools of running water to begin your enchantment.

We were then greeted, and got into position, with a spectacular view of the winery, getting into position to be carried away in the wine tasting extravaganza.

Next our glasses were prepared with several different wines to smell, taste, and learn about from our handsome Montes host.

These were the wines we tasted:
  • Sauvignon Blanc 2015 - I rated this 4+ out of 5
  • Montes Alpha Chardonnay 2014 - I rated this 3+
  • Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 - I rate this 3
  • Syrah 2014 - I rated this as 2+
  • Purple Angel - I rated this as 4+ 
We then had dinner at the winery and this is when it became unique and rather breathtaking. We walked to the back of the winery, which was also very beautiful....

Then hopped on the Purple Angel to be escorted to the top of the winery

for a sunset dinner overlooking the valley and winery.
with lovely foods and wines.

This was an exquisite feast with an abundance of ambiance. It was one of those moments that will be forever sealed as a wonderful experience.
