We had a very pleasant experience doing wine tasting at Chamonix. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. The wines and schnapps was also delectable.

Wine tasting and lunch was the agenda. We tasted about 9 wines (only paid for 6 but we did take a few home) then sat on the balcony under the trees for lunch. The acorns were falling in the canopy and the general atmosphere was different but lovely. The lamb chops I ordered were simply divine and combined with everything... More

They have some excellent Pinot Noir but the vibe felt very commercial. The lady that helped us was very friendly ☺ eventhough they were clearly understaffed.

We stopped at Chamonix since we were staying at a lodge nearby. If this had been the first winery we had visited we may have been more impressed but it was the last one on our wine tour and unfortunately it was not as memorable as many of the other wine estates we had visited. It is located on a... More

We enjoyed our tasting here. My husband bought two bottles. The Piont Noir and the newest addition, Troica. He likes a full bodied red wine and these were his favorites. It's a pretty little place and the staff was very nice. You won't need to spend much time here because it's fairly small.

What a nice little place. Very cozy and our server at the tasting was fantastic. Very petsonable and didn't mind talking to us and answering any questions we had. Definately not grand like some of the other estates, but worth it for the look and feel of the property

We were excited to visit Chamonix after reading good reviews in various travel materials and reserving a tasting in advance, but were quite disappointed. The service was incredibly disinterested and borderline rude. The servers provided no information whatsoever about the wines, even though the tasting room was by no means busy. The wines themselves were also lackluster. We wouldn’t recommend... More

This is one of many vineries in Franschhoek. Great place to walk to as a warm up for some wine tasting.

We were taken here by a wine guide and were not disappointed. This little beauty is nothing fancy on the outside but serves up outstanding wines - in particular the unoaked Chardonnay and the Reserve Pinot Noir were some of the best wines we tried during our week in wine country. Our server was sweet, knowledgeable and clearly in love... More

We had heard the wines had a good reputation so visited to taste. It is not of the standard of other wineries. Tables squashed in underneath trees, no views despite being on the hill side. It is ok at times to talk to other visitors--here there is not choice but to hear what others are talking about. The tasting was... More
