About Our Sponsors: 

Visit Vina Montes and Kaiken Winery to learn moreabout our sponsors…

Founded in 2001 by renowned Chilean Winemaker Aurelio Montes, KAIKEN is located in Argentina’s most traditional wine-growing area of Mendoza – Vistalba – one of the country’s oldest and most prestigious regions due to its singular terroir. The young, passionate team, now led by Chief Winemaker Aurelio Montes Jr., works the most unique vineyards within and outside of Mendoza to produce wines of true character, personality, elegance and expression.  This includes the main estate in Vistalba where grapes for the hallmark ULTRA wines are grown; estate vineyards in nearby Agrelo and Vistaflores; and vineyards in relatively wild, unchartered regions such as Cafayate in Salta, and Guataladje in Tupungato. In these untapped regions, KAIKEN meticulously supervises each step within the growing season from start to finish, overseeing every detail to attain full potential from the finest grapes, contributing to the production of unique terroir-focused wines beyond Malbec.
Founded in 1988, Viña Montes is the brainchild of Aurelio Montes and Douglas Murray, both veterans of the wine industry. along with partners Alfredo Vidaurre and Pedro Grand, they created Viña Montes with the goal of elevating the quality and reputation of Chilean wines – both in Chile and around the world. In the quarter century since, Viña Montes has played a pivotal role in enhancing awareness, affinity, and acclaim for Chilean wines in more than 100 countries worldwide. In essence, Viña Montes has become the benchmark for premium Chilean wines.
