Boasting some of the highest planted vines in the Cape Winelands, Chamonix has around 50 hectares under vineyard.
As purists we have always believed that to produce a wine of true character, it is essential that nature be the primary winemaker.
Our farm is blessed with cool breezes during the hot summer months and stony, clay-rich soil, giving our wines their unique personality and style. A philosophy of minimal intervention and environmentally conscious farming methods are just some of our secret ingredients.
All our fruit is hand-selected, and we follow traditional methods such as making use of spontaneous fermentation and no acidification. Organic compost and mulch are ploughed back into the soil, while our use of green-harvesting (low yields per hectare) ensures that our vineyards are not over-produced.
Our philosophy of working hand-in-hand with nature to create unique wines and spirits carries through into the cellar, where our small, hands-on team approach their work with passion and creativity. The end result is a product that is pure, natural and made to be enjoyed.
