Everybody has their own opinion on what makes South Africa special. While some say it’s the sticky braais, others point to the weather or the fact that no other country produces quite as many Macadamia nuts. However, as much as people’s opinions vary, everyone agrees that when it comes to wine routes – South Africa takes the grape. Enjoy a one night stay for two people, including breakfast, wine-tasting and a bottle of Mont Rochelle Rosé at the stunning Mont Rochelle Hotel and Mountain Vineyards.
Set upon the slopes of the majestic Franschoek Mountains, Mont Rochelle is both a luxurious hotel and a productive sweeping vineyard. The Mont Rochelle Hotel and Mountain Vineyards combines the best of Cape Town’s wandering Winelands under one umbrella, providing its guests with a unique experience in a luxurious accommodation, exciting gourmet dining areas, personalised wine tasting and cellar tours and the very best views in Franschoek.
Whether you consider yourself a wine connoisseur, a wine enthusiast or someone who’s just enthusiastic when drinking wine, a private wine tasting will harvest your interest and teach you a thing or two about the beautiful vineyard.
After you’re greeted with a friendly bottle of Mont Rochelle Rosé, spend a night of soundless slumber in one of the Mont Rochelle’s stunning rooms – a perfect blend of style and comfort – and wake up to gorgeous views from every angle. Spanning widely across three wings of the hotel, the rooms are available in classic, contemporary or colonial decors and with all that space you can’t help feeling like you’re the madam or monsieur of your very own manor house.
Stop your wining about wanting to get away or never doing anything different and enjoy a truly magnificent stay at one the Franschoek’s best hotels.
Wine and dine fact: According to the Red Wine Record Book, the strangest bottle ever made had hints of yellow post-it and a bouquet that resemble that of a Louisiana Swamp.
