The original concept for the Monument Vineyard originated in the early 1990s with a group of five Charles Sturt University Viticulture and Wine Science students. These were mature-age students, successful in their own professions who wanted to become seriously involved in wine growing. Economy of scale seemed to be the way to collectively achieve the individual goals of each of the group members, and so the Cana Viticulture Partnership was formed in which the investing partners have direct managerial control of the project.
