about the harvest: Montino Petillant Light named after Kasteelberg, which guards the Riebeek Valley, is made from Muscadel grapes - harvested early to capture the natural fruit and sweetness of the grapes.

in the cellar : Unlike many ‘light’ wines that are ‘designed’ in the cellar, the Montino range is naturally lower in alcohol. Following a strict policy of ‘nothing added, nothing taken away’, grapes are picked green with less natural sugar for a wine that is naturally lower in alcohol and kilojoules for a more conscious lifestyle. The Montino range is made in ‘pettilant style’, which adds a slight sparkle for a crisp and refreshing finish, perfect for warm summer days.
