About Chamonix

Chamonix is located in the rich wine-growing region of the Western Cape, tucked away deep in the Franschhoek Valley. Once a part of the historic La Cotte Farm, granted to the Huguenots in 1688, Chamonix today comprises 300 hectares.

Today Chamonix is known for its award-winning wines, German-style Schnapps, Grappa and Spring Water, which can be tasted all year round, seven days a week at their wine tasting room in the Blacksmith’s Cottage. The quaint cottage was built in the 18th century and is decorated with antique saddles and horse memorabilia.

Chamonix is known for internationally acclaimed wines, which include a Methode Cap Classique Sparkling Wine, Sauvignon Blanc (a Fume as well as an unwooded), Chardonnay (a cellar master barrel selection), Pinotage, Cabernet Sauvignon and Bordeaux Blend (Troika). Their wines vary from other South African wines due to the advantage of having an altitude variation (250m to 450m). As a result, each variety is planted in optimal position to its suitable microclimate.

Taste and purchase any Chamonix product daily from 9:30 am until 16:30 pm in the old Blacksmith’s Cottage.
