As recently as the 1980s, only 10 wineries existed in Chile, making wines that were -- at best -- OK. Today, there are hundreds of Chilean wineries, making good to outstanding wines, many of which are highly coveted by savvy wine collectors. Aurelio Montes Jr. tells the story of how his father kickstarted a winemaking revolution in Chile -- and what father and son are doing next to rock the wine world (despite the persistence of hungry beavers).
