his wine is an intense deep ruby-red colour. The nose has spicy notes intermingled with ripe plums and blueberries. It has great volume in the mouth, with good concentration and excellent structure.

Brothers Hernán and Eduardo Gras, along with partner Christian Hartwig, set up the winery in 1993, combining state-of-the-art technology with the talent and passion of a very special group of people.

Hernán brought the substantial winemaking experience he had gained in Canada, while his brother, Eduardo and their friend Cristian Hartwig, contributed with their entrepreneurial vision and pragmatic business acumen. Their combination of skills and experience has enabled MontGras to become one of Chile’s foremost wine groups.
