Directions to Chamonix Wine Farm
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 al year round, seven days a week at our wine tasting room in the Blacksmith’s Cottage.
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). Chamonix 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. A quaint cottage built in the 18th century decorated with antique saddles and horse memorabilia.
Chamonix is also well known for the water it produces. Sourced from underground springs in the Franschhoek Mountains, Eau De Chamonix is one of the purest and healthiest waters available in South Africa. Chamonix produces quality spring water to leading retail outlets in South Africa.
In the Chamonix Distillery classic German style fruit schnapps and aperitifs are produced. The Chamonix distillery is run according to German distillery standards with genuine imported German copper kettles. Also produced is Grappa, and Chamonix Grappa follows the 400-year tradition of Grappa distilling countries like Italy, France and Germany. This increasingly popular spirit is made from distilling masses of grape skins and stalks. Chamonix Schweden Bitter and CRH Bitters are also distilled at our distillery from herbs infused with farm fruit alcohol from the original ancient recipe, a natural herbal remedy, with no artificial colorants and flavourings, no added caffeine sugar or preservatives added.
