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... read 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....

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
