History was made in Montagu on January 1st, 2010, when two of our largest wine companies, namely Rietrivier and Uitvlucht Cellars combined forces to form Montagu Wine & Spirits Company Ltd. The two companies now function and are managed as one entity, but with two production sites. The head office and tasting room facilities of the company are in Bathstreet, Montagu where Uitvlucht was previously situated. The other site, (previously Rietrivier Cellar) is 20 km further on Route 62 towards Barrydale and is now used only for production.
A very close relationship exists between the production personnel and both winemakers of the two cellars. This ensures that the best quality grapes are identified and used in the creation of quality wine. Montagu Wine & Spirits Company strives towards becoming a major player in the bulk wine market. In 2010, the Company received the award for the best cellar in the Little Karoo National Young Wine Show. This is truly a great start for the road ahead!
The best quality wine produced in a year, is selected, bottled and sold under the Montagu Wine & Spirits brand. Bottled wine from the company is mainly available from the site in town, but also in selected retail stores in the Western Cape. We, therefore, invite all our clients and prospective clients to come and meet us and taste our wine and famous Muscadel at our cellars, in the beautiful town of Montagu!
