The vineyards that produce the grapes for the Montes Wings are located in the Colchagua Valley, at the Finca de Apalta Estate. One of the special characteristics of this Carmenère vineyard is its location on steep slopes, 656 feet above the vineyards on the valley floor. The soils are granitic, with an important percentage of clay, very good drainage, and a south-western exposure, allowing for more controlled temperatures during the warm summer days. Apalta has very heterogeneous soils: some strongly influenced by the nearby Tinguiririca River, and others with the more colluvial origin of eroded material from high above in the mountain range that curves around the valley. Soils tend to be deeper on the valley floor, and thinner at the foot of the mountains and higher up.
