“Chamonix Wine Tasting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

I actually walked to Chamonix from Franschhoek town in the pouring rain but the wines made it worth it. Lovely open fire in the main area allowed me to dry out and warm up. Excellent wines - some definitely need to be purchased for for future consumption.

“We wish we could have stayed longer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2012

This was our first stop on a day of wine tasting in Franschhoek, and it ended up being one of our favorite places on the trip. We were treated with a full assortment of their delicious wines, sitting comfortably by a warm fire. We are still dreaming about the 2009 Cab Sauv and are amazed at the crazy value of the Rouge. Oh how I wish it were easier to take wines back to the United States from South Africa. We hated to leave, but we wanted to explore more of the area. The wines were so memorable, however, that we have contacted to have some shipped to the US.

“Really don't bother”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2012

This is a fairly new winery and you would think they would try their best to get custom. We accidentally went here when we were trying to get to Diedre Donne. It cost 20rand each and they have dodgy benches and it's quite dark. The staff weren't very welcoming either - definitly avoid!

“Just a pretty place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2012

The venue is certainly charming, rustic and pleasant. The wine on the other hand, not so great
