Montana wine refers to wine made from grapes grown in the U.S. state of Montana. There are eight wineries in Montana, with most producing wine from fruits other than grapes or from grapes grown in other states, such as California, Oregon, or Washington. There are no American Viticultural Areas in Montana.

One of New Zealand's largest and oldest wineries, Montana Wines, renamed its range to Brancott Estate in 2010 in order to avoid confusion in the United States, New Zealand's largest wine export market.[2]
