Terroirist: A Daily Wine Blog » Weekly Interview: Aurelio Montes, Jr.

Each week, as our regular readers know, we pose a series of questions to a winemaker. This week, we’re featuring Aurelio Montes Jr., the head winemaker at Kaiken Wines in Mendoza, Argentina. Kaiken is a branch of Montes Wines. Some of our readers may recall that we have interviewed the chairman of Montes Wines, Aurelio Montes, who is this week’s interviewee’s father. This interview provides an important insight into a significant winemaking family. Below, we ask Aurelio Jr. about the influence of his father on his winemaking. Aurelio Jr. is not, however, a home-grown winemaker. Instead, he traveled across the country to work at many wineries not affiliated with Montes Wines before he returned to the family business in 2007. It’ll be interesting to observe the next generation of wines from the Montes family. Check out the interview below the fold! Let’s start from the beginning. Where were you born? My family comes from different places around the world. […]

EU wine producers in limbo as China probe continues

Bordeaux’s wine council hopes the French prime minister’s visit to China this week can help ease tension over an ongoing anti-dumping investigation into European wine shipments, but a quick resolution looks unlikely.

The Chinese government’s anti-dumping probe continues to cast a shadow on European Union (EU) wine producers, even though a deal to resolve the issue that sparked it – tariffs on solar panels entering the EU from China – was this week rubber-stamped by the Council of EU member state ministers.

It is hard to estimate the impact on EU wine exports to China as a result of the uncertainty, especially because, in terms of fine wine, the country is already overstocked as a result of government austerity measures.

But, frustration is growing in the wine trade, and perhaps nowhere more so than Bordeaux. As previously reported on decanter.com, two thirds of the 430m litres of wine imported into China last year came from the EU, with France accounting for half of that, driven by Bordeaux.

‘Wine was taken hostage to the first problem, and linked together with it,’ Bernard Farges, president of Bordeaux wine council the CIVB, told decanter.com. ‘But we have not been linked together with the solution – so there is still an outstanding question mark.’

He added, ‘We hope that the visit this week to China by French prime minister Jean-Marc Ayrault will see a resolution, as so far we have no concrete decision.’

Ayrault’s visit may help to soothe relations, but a quick resolution looks unlikely.

In the summer, the European Commission effectively secured a moratorium on any Chinese action on wine imports by agreeing that the two sides would foster ‘business to business’ discussions on the issue.

The agreement was that ‘no measures would be imposed as long as this dialogue was ongoing’, a European Commission official told decanter.com.

‘The first meeting [on 18 November] saw only very preliminary exchanges of views taking place with the emphasis on keeping the dialogue open. The next meeting is provisionally scheduled to take place on 17 February 2014.’

A spokesperson for ASC Fine Wine, one of China’s largest wine importers, told decanter.com that there has been ‘no noticeable impact’ from the investigation so far.

‘The major challenge the market is facing is mainly due to the austerity measures the government is taking, [which] have slowed down the general demand for fine wine, especially for gifting and corporate entertaining.’
