With such a wide selection of wineries throughout the province, it can be difficult to differentiate yourself from the pack. But Montakarn did just that in 2003, with the husband and wife duo converting an apricot and peach orchard into vineyards of Merlot, Chardonnay, Malbec, Cabernet Franc, Syrah, as well as a small planting of Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier. Gary Misson’s architectural knowledge and Montakarn Misson’s business acumen have served the winery well since its inception. They’ve chosen to reject pomp and pretense in favour of honesty and hard work, channeling their passion into blended wines. When you taste Montakarn, you taste this passion.
