Former château wanted by the Burgundian family of winemakers Perry-Graniger , who first planted the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay varieties, then converted into a "castle" by the Ugento winemaker Antonio Provenzano who took it in ownership, and dedicated to the monks, to whom its foundation is attributed, in 1513.

In 1912 the autochthonous Apulian vines Fiano , Malvasia Nera di Lecce , Negroamaro and Primitivo take the place of Pinot Noir, and the Memmo family, which is still at the helm of Castello Monaci, decides to build a huge barrel cellar , with over 1000 barriques and 18 barrels French oak, a high quality wood capable of increasing the expressive possibilities of wines, but used sparingly to respect the identity of the original grapes.

The range consists of over 20 labels: rich wines of great variety , " designed by the sun and the wind of Salento " , which originate on a soil composed of a deep layer of white tufaceous rock that supports the vines in the periods of greatest drought , condition in which the plant is able to express itself at its best, going down in depth and enriching itself with the characteristic mineral and saline features of this territory enclosed between the Ionian and Adriatic seas.

Very interesting are the labels of the selections of Castello Monaci, whose names refer to ancient Greek mythology: like Artas a great Primitivo that in the past has been awarded several times with the recognition of the Three Glasses of the Gambero Rosso , the rosé Kreos, which takes its name of the goddess with pinkish fingers, the Selections of Salento Mèdos and Charà , concluding with the Selections of the Castle , true qualitative excellences such as Pilùna , Marù , Acante and Simera .
