Our Farm

Steeped in history and boasting some of the highest planted vineyards in the Cape, Chamonix is set amongst 300 hectares of pristine natural beauty on the Eastern slopes of the Franschhoek mountains.

About Chamonix

Cape Chamonix Wine Farm once formed part of the historic Huguenot Estate, La Cotte, which dates back to 1688.

Today, Chamonix is known for its wonderful setting and abundant facilities, as well as award-winning wines and spirits, and pure Spring Water.

What Makes us Different

Since being acquired by German-born entrepreneur and adventurer Chris Hellinger two decades ago, the estate has undergone tremendous improvements, and offers visitors a host of culinary and recreational options in spectacular surroundings.

From the secluded Forest Lodge overlooking scenic Lacq de Chamonix to the renowned Racine restaurant, from our diverse wedding facilities to the wide array of fine wines, spirits and other delights on offer, everything we do at Chamonix is done with love, passion and an unwavering attention to detail.
