Wine Bar

Montegray & Independents

Lovely Relaxed Atmosphere

Montegray & Independents is a wine bar that opened its doors in Stellenbosch in November 2017. Located along Bird Street, it serves as a go-to spot to while away the hours. Guests will be introduced to the flagship, small-batch Montegray wines, crafted from tiny, long Cape Winelands vineyards – with the very reason to celebrate this winelands. The grape varietals, reduced from large-scale blends will provide a benchmark of outstanding quality.

Accompanying these wines, the spotlight will be cast on a changing selection of interesting small, independent producer wines. These wines will always be selected according to a certain theme. The current theme is Far and Beyond (as oppose to Banghoek Valley previously) and Women in Wine in August. Current independent producers include Sijnn Wines (David Trafford – Malgas), Driehoek Wines (David Nieuwoudt – Cederberg) and Fable Mountain Vineyards (Tremayne Smith – Tulbagh).

House of Gin

House of Tempest Gin with Canapes
Montegray & Independents also serves as the House of The Tempest Gin – With all of the above, we will at M&I also serve The Tempest Gin - The Signature of the Seasons - as well as a changing menu of locally sourced, small sharing plates including Bobotie Springrolls, Tune Ceviche and King Prawns.

The space is stylish, with comfortable leather and velvet furniture, bold Ardmore wallpaper and intricate brass features. We will often invite our independent producers to offer tastings in the tasting room - a glass ‘conservatory’ style space at the heart of Montegray.

Rose & Michael Jordaan have always been passionate about wine and winemaking. M&I serves to be another platform to really enjoy and celebrate Authentic South African wines.
