Moncaro has launched a new wine range that contains only half of the maximum allowed level of sulphites. This was made possible thanks to Moncaro’s substantial investments in research and development.


“Wine making with no added sulphites is the new wine holy grail says Moncaro’s winemaker Giuliano D’Ignazi. In 2014 we launched two different wines with no sulphites under the name of Atavico. This was made possible also thanks to the partnership with the Italian winemaker Riccardo Cotarella, chairman of Assoenologi”.


Moncaro’s aim is to combine the highest quality with the need to create a healthier product. Thanks to constant investment in R&D, Moncaro was able to extend the wines’ longevity even with no sulphites, so much that the company is considering reducing sulphites in its entire product range.
This year Moncaro celebrates its 50th anniversary.

One of Moncaro’s key markets is China.

In the same year Moncaro also started a joint venture in India, in Mumbay area.
