Casa Montes is located 700 metres above sea level in the Tulum Valley in San Juan, the second largest wine producing area in Argentina. San Juan is a vast province located in the West of Argentina, bordering other well-known wine producing regions such as La Rioja and Mendoza, and Chile to the west.
The climate is very hot and dry but with cool nights in the summer which optimises the maturity levels of the grapes. The winery was established in 1992 with the aim of becoming a boutique cellar producing top quality, good value wines. It is owned and managed by the Montes Family, a well-known and respected family who own San Juan's foremost radio station and newspaper.
