Monument is outside the Orange Region GI, but it is accessible from the region.
An old sandstone monument stands on the corner of a vineyard signifying the place where, many years ago, Major Mitchell began his explorations of SE Australia. The monument is a timely reminder of one man's thirst for exploration.Today, the journey continues here for the Jones family, passionate about producing wine that you can enjoy and share with your friends and family. The original concept for Monument Vineyard originated in the early 1990's by a group of Charles Sturt University Viticulture and Wine Science students. The well drained, terra rosa soil of Cudal revealed an environment with great potential for large scale production of premium grade wine. The first 50 hectares of vines were planted in 1998 with the remaining blocks established the following year.
