The Montgras Winery, located in the heart of Colchagua in Central Valley, was born of its founders’ shared dream to create a new definition for quality Chilean winemaking. The green tones and design of our Sauvignon Blanc label depict the abundant rainforests of southern Chile along the millenary Araucaria tree.
