Very much liked their wine tasting flight and their spicy nuts and olives make great accompaniments. If you can find a seat outside the front it's a great place to spend an hour or two.

We visited to taste the wine and had a great selection of the reserves paired with some cheeses. Most were lovely and we picked up a bottle. Service was friendly and helpful and we enjoyed the overall experience. There's a restaurant as well but we didnt need to eat anything so didn't go in.

A quiet and rustic setting with no views, in fact a bit claustrophobic for a tasting compared to the restaurant, which had great views over the valley. However, service was excellent and staff knowledgable. There was a choice of general or premium ranges of wines to taste. We went for the premium range and enjoyed the selection in the main....

This was the last stop at the end of a long day of wine tasting on the wine tram tour and also after the Dieu Donne winery with its wonderful Roco Restaurant. So basically it started off as an anti climax. The venue is very rustic and tranquil set along side a cool stream with large tree ferns. Rustic to... More

After drinking Chamonix wines for some time now I thought it would be a good idea to visit their estate. The drive up to the tasting rooms was stunnign and the facilities looked great too. Such a pity the service let them down terribly with a 'take it or leave it attitude' . Bought their Troika but only two bottles... More

With the many choices available in Franschhoek for wine tasting the staff were very rude and told us they were closed because they had no clean wine glasses. Never again.

At Chamonix, we bought one bottle of their Pinot Noir. The sitting area was very comfortable. The wine was also excellent. At Chamonix, I forgot to turn off my car lights and my car battery was dead by the time that I got back to my car. Chamonix was kind enough to call for a person to jump our car.... More

The tasting room itself is a little dark. The staff are a little 'hit and miss'. The tasting itself is at the high end of the price range for the area at R50 (and you don't get this refunded on a purchase!). We managed to convince the staff (not an easy task!!) to allow us to bring our wine tasting... More
