Good enough. Walk here and enjoy a glass or two

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

We had heard good things about Chamonix, but our whole experience was very poor. We asked if they were still offering tastings with 15 minutes to go till their closing time. The first waitress we met said that they were and that there are no issues with times. However after we sat down another waitress came up to us and... More

This was our last winery or a short tour of 5. We spat at every tasting so our senses were not bombed out by the time we got to Chamonix. We thought the wines were ok, but not really any better than that. We would not seek to find these in the UK to purchase. The wine tasting room seemed... More

You have to spend R1000 to get your tasting for free but their wines are awful. They do not let you taste the nice wine.

Nice cozy place. Wine is good, but not something to come back for. Food was very good. And the staff's attitude was a little out of place. The tasting host girl was rushing with her presentations, although there were only another table occupied besides ours. Didn't engage or made us feel welcomed. I don't know, maybe she had a bad...

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....
