Kaiken, a new label, is the first Argentine venture of Aurelio Montes, the respected wine maker of the Chilean Vina Montes, producers of the excellent Montes Alpha wines. Kaiken is a Mapuche Indian word for a Patagonian goose that, appropriately, ranges on both sides of the Andes.
The wines are produced from purchased grapes sourced from several different vineyards in the Tupungato area of Mendoza. After determining which areas produce the best fruit, Montes eventually plans to acquire his own vineyard land in Argentina and build his own winery there.
