It was precisely the wines of Argentina that attracted Montes into
that country. For that same reason we imposed upon ourselves,
right from the start, in 2001, the task of acquiring for KAIKEN
the best grapes produced in the area. We went through all
the best grape producing estates, finally deciding for the
exceptional quality of that in the First Zone (Maipú, Cruz de
Piedra, Ugarteche, Agrelo) as well as from Valle de Uco. Along
with a hard selection of the best producers, we meticulously
supervise each step and work in the vineyard from start to finish
of each growing season, observing well each little detail. This, to
attain the full potential from the best grapes.
