Last week my BFFs and I celebrated Jen’s birthday with a wine tasting thanks to Montes Wine. Montes was founded in 1987 and is the the pioneer producer of premium quality Chilean wines. Our night started with an informal tasting with a totally awesome sommelier, Lesley Prevost, followed by a delicious selection of Chilean catering.

We were treated to four of their premium wines you can now find at the LCBO:
- Montes Twins Sauvignon Blanc 2015
- Montes Twins Malbec/Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
- Montes Alpha Malbec 2o12
- Montes Alpha Cab Sav 2013
We all really enjoyed the Sauv Blanc, it was light and fruity, with nodes of tropical fruits pineapple, grapefruit and orange blossom. I could deff see myself drinking this all summer. I think it would be really nice w/with some fruit/Perrier on ice.
I really enjoyed the Malbec/Cab Sav blend, it has 14% alcohol and low acid (good for me with acid reflux ? ). The other two reds pair really well with meat & cheese.

If you’re looking to try something new at the LCBO (and love Chilean wine), give Montes Wines a try. They’ve also got a carmenère at the LCBO I’d like to pair with a nice BBQ at the cottage. Spring, get here alreadyyyyy!
Later this month I’ve got a giveaway with Montes Wine that’s open to anyone in Ontario. Will let you know when it’s live!
