About us

After a couple of meeting with friends, trips and moonlit bonfires, a group of Argentinian businessmen with a vast experience in farming had the same dream: to make wines from matchless-quality grapes.

This is how Montechez Fincas y Bodegas was born in 2005. After a long time producing corn, soy, sunflower, peanut, cotton, meat, wood, etc., it was time to do something where, apart from sharing their professional skills, they could enjoy what they were doing. That spirit led them to their goal of producing high-quality grapes and wines that represent the best of their terroir and culture.

Montechez’s estates are located in a privileged region for wine growing. The first one, only planted with Malbec, is situated in Alto Ugarteche, in the so-called “first wine region”, irrigated by Mendoza River, at over 900 meter asl.

The other two extend over the Uco Valley, an extraordinary place for winemaking; one of them, in La Consulta, and the other one in Altamira. Both estates are grown with Malbec, Cabernet Franc, Shiraz, Pinot Noir, Pinot Grigio, and Chardonnay, at over 1,000 meters asl.
