Franschhoek Wine Valley

La Couronne Wines

Nestled between towering mountains in the beautiful Cape Winelands lies the La Couronne Estate.  The farm has breath-taking views of the majestic Franschhoek Mountains & vineyards, with the tranquillity of the constantly flowing Berg River that runs through it.

Spectacular vineyards cover these mountain slopes settled more than 300 years ago by the Huguenots, who brought with them their age-old French wine and food culture.

La Couronne’s key attractions include: a newly-opened wine-tasting centre, showcasing La Couronne’s range of fine wines, for tasting and sales; wedding and conference facilities and our country style accommodation at Le Chais Villa in the Village.  Visit the ALL NEW tasting room at La Couronne – experience our Chocolate and Wine Pairing! Order a Picnic basket in advance to chill out on the farm!
