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!

The vineyard was beautiful and peaceful. My fiance and I went at a quiet time and thoroughly enjoyed the cheese and wine, followed by a private tour of the winery. Our guide was very knowledgeable and it was so interesting to understand the process better. Thank you!

Very nice experience and nice wine with local snacks. Service spoke good English and explained the wine. Furthermore, a museum about the wine history of Tenerife that you could walk in.

Very interesting tour around the wine estate, friendly people. Wonderful wines to taste, very good cheeses. Highly recommended!
