Our Vineyards

Boasting some of the highest planted vines in the Cape Winelands, Chamonix has around 50 hectares under vineyard.

Great Wines Start on the Vine

As purists we have always believed that to produce a wine of true character, it is essential that nature be the primary winemaker.

Our farm is blessed with cool breezes during the hot summer months and stony, clay-rich soil, giving our wines their unique personality and style. A philosophy of minimal intervention and environmentally conscious farming methods are just some of our secret ingredients.

Harvesting Time

All our fruit is hand-selected, and we follow traditional methods such as making use of spontaneous fermentation and no acidification. Organic compost and mulch are ploughed back into the soil, while our use of green-harvesting (low yields per hectare) ensures that our vineyards are not over-produced.

Our philosophy of working hand-in-hand with nature to create unique wines and spirits carries through into the cellar, where our small, hands-on team approach their work with passion and creativity. The end result is a product that is pure, natural and made to be enjoyed.
