Cape Chamonix

South Africa - Coastal Region, Franschhoek

Chamonix Wine Farm is nestled against Mont Rochelle mountain, deep within the rich wine-growing valley of Franschhoek in the Western Cape. Formerly part of historic La Cotte granted to the Huguenots in 1688, Chamonix today comprises some 248 hectares. Chris Hellinger, purchased the farm in the early nineties when it was predominantly an export fruit farm. With tenacity and vigour a replanting program began, steadily replacing fruit trees with noble French varieties of vines, and with an engineering background combined with old-world principles an underground cellar was built.
