More about us

The cellar was established in 1941, producing wine of the variety of the day, namely Muscadel. Just grapes of the highest quality with a minimum of 24° B were used. Monis’ marsala and moscato had its origin in this cellar and this special and unique method is still used.

In later years the cellar moved into making dry table wines as well and today, the cellar is proud of the variety of trophies that were received for all their champion wines. The cellar has several times been the Champion Co-op Cellar of the region and their red Muscadel was already four times chosen for the Nederburg Wine Auction where it was described as “the best wine for the price anywhere in the world”.
