A really big surprise. A friendly welcome in the future. We had an assortment of adapted cheeses with 4 different wines. This from soft to harder with both cheese and wine. A wow feeling. We are not red wine drinkers at all, but our Belgian (room temperature) red wines are not at all comparable to those from here in the region, they are even served cold. After tasting a nice explanation about the grapes (even got to taste). And then you get the tour inside the room where everything is processed. And at the very bottom the biggest surprise, very specle space ;). During the tour you will also get to know 1 wine that is processed completely the same but then matures on land and the other under water. Same bottle, but what a difference due to pressure, sunlight and temperature. Delicious, definitely recommend to try them.

A winery immersed in the vineyards of Tenerife. The wines are good and the guided tour through the cellar is very interesting. Too bad that the restaurant was closed for holidays (all the month of August) otherwise we would have tried it. The cellar staff recommended an excellent typical Tenerife restaurant (Guachiche) where we had dinner after the tasting.

The tasting and tour was great! The cheese and wine were perfectly matched and a true experience. The ambience of the Monje winery is not only rustic, but also creative and innovative and at the same time in a beautiful vineyard setting - a real must-do if you're in the area!
