In a beautiful ruby red colour, the Chamonix Cabernet Franc shimmers in the glass, revealing an intense aromatic play of spices and dark berries, accompanied by smoky notes. On the palate, the full-bodied red wine impresses above all with its excellent structure. The Chamonix Cabernet Franc matured for 18 months in French oak and is a wonderful accompaniment to dishes with dark meat or cheese, although it can also be spiced up a little on the plate.

Chamonix – Traditional Wine Farm amidst Nature

The perfect location of the 50 hectares of vineyards plays a significant role in this development. They stretch to the eastern slopes of the Franschhoek Mountains, surrounded by 300 hectares of natural beauty. A unique view of beautiful nature! Additionally to the awarded top wines, the winery also produces its own crystal clear mineral water which – in terms of quality – belongs to the best in the country and is therefore ideal to be enjoyed with wine.

Additionally, he knows how to pamper his wine enthusiastic visitors with an exclusive kitchen and culinary delights and plenty of activities in the beautiful Franschhoek Mountains.
