Franschhoek Spotlight on Haute Cabriere
Comprised of two farms, situated on opposite ends of the breathtaking Franschhoek Wine Valley, Haute Cabrière is something extraordinary. A rich history, a whimsical setting, a seductive approach to wine and a magnetic proprietor ensure that it is a decadent affair for any visitor. The core belief that wine is grown not made makes the farm’s ethos incredibly real and intrinsically human. Wine is more than what is in the bottle and as such is considered an exceptionally intimate experience. This seductive conviction is intertwined with the farm’s ultimate philosophy that wine is bigger than one, it’s the combination of four factors: Sun, Soil, Vine, Man.
The Pierre Jourdan Tasting Cellar, situated adjacent to the Haute Cabrière Cellar Restaurant, offers guests an exclusive wine experience. An auditorium within the maturation cellar, as well as additional tasting facilities, ensure that visitors are able to enjoy Pierre Jourdan and Haute Cabrière wines in their natural habitat.
Every Saturday Achim von Arnim and his son, Takuan, treat guests (groups of no more than eight) to the ultimate in wine theatre. Visitors are whisked away on the intimate journey through Haute Cabrière’s history and wine philosophy. The use of a famed French cavalry sabre, to open bottle after bottle of Pierre Jourdan Cap Classique, adds the perfect amount of dramatic flair to this exceptional adventure.
