In Mont Rochelle’s vineyard we cultivate grapes of the Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Merlot, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon varieties amongst a few others.
The vineyards are situated between 250m and 400m above sea level exposing the grapes to a range of micro climates. Mediterranean-like conditions found in the Western Cape means dry summers and high winter rainfalls of 1000mm. The Franschhoek Valley also experiences the southeaster which helps bring in cooler air allowing for a longer ripening period.
Here at Mont Rochelle wine tasting isn’t just a special event – it’s an everyday occurrence.
