Château Montana was founded at the end of the 19th century. With the backing of his family, Jean Jonquères d’Oriola, the son of winegrowers based in the Pyrénées Orientales for over 5 centuries set about developing the fineness and powerfulness of this terroir and the potential of the location driven by his passion. The vineyard covers sixty hectares over two terroirs in the Aspres on the foothills of the Pic du Canigou, between the sea and the mountains, south of Perpignan. We work on the clay-limestone soils with traditional grape stocks such as Syrah, Grenache, Carignan and Mourvèdre as well as other varietals such as Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Marselan and Muscat. We now have "High Environmental Value" certification, which gives pride of place to traditional methods, such as working the soil mechanically and respecting the environment, which promote biodiversity and keep yields low. Now we are in our second year of conversion over to organic growing. Our production will be certified organic for the 2023 vintage. Our wines are matured, mellowed and bottled at the property in our cellar equipped with heat-regulated stainless steel vats and a cask storage cellar. In addition to its wine-growing activity that it will reveal to you when you come to visit and sample our wines, Château Montana rents out its function room and self-catering accommodation for all kinds of events.
