“Located 51 km from De Velde Estate, situated high above the fertile Franschhoek valley in the heart of the Cape Winelands, lies a wine farm like no other. Chamonix offers visitors a seamless blend of unspoiled nature, welcoming hospitality, exquisite facilities and a host of culinary and viticultural delights, set amongst a working wine farm and water bottling plant with a history stretching back nearly 350 years. The farm is blessed with cool breezes during the hot summer months and stony, clay-rich soil, giving the wines their unique personality and style. A philosophy of minimal intervention and environmentally conscious farming methods are just some of the secret ingredients.”
