Brut Rosé

Méthode Cap Classique

This is a Pinot Noir-led Brut Rosé with all the brightness and freshness of this grape variety displayed in the wine. A salmon-pink blush complemented by a seductive brisk sparkle.
Fun and flirtatious with bubbles that burst gently on your tongue. An elegant fruit structure. Fresh, crisp red berries with a creamy length and a graceful finish.

Brut Royale

Méthode Cap Classique

This evocative Brut NV MCC has beautiful lemon cream and almond biscotti flavours on the nose, backed by refreshing citrus and tropical fruit notes on the palate. The finish is long and moreish  with the playfulness of delicate bubbles

Sauvignon Blanc

Statue de Femme

Taking its name from the graceful monument built in honour of the French Huguenots, this elegant Sauvignon Blanc has delectable tropical flavours tinged with capsicum, balanced acidity and a fresh, lingering finish.

Chenin Blanc

La Cotte Mill

Named after the old mill houses that were once famous landmarks in the Valley, this Chenin Blanc features fleshy peach and pineapple aromas supported by a bright burst of citrus and some leesy intrigue


Our Town Hall

Like our stately historical town hall, this wine has gentle curves yet boldly expresses itself. It is unoaked Chardonnay with wonderful complexity, featuringattractivecitrus on bothnose and palate underpinned by a lively balancing acidity.


Club House

Inspired by the legendary clubhouse at the local sports club, this Rosé was made for fun and enjoyment. It has a hint of residual sweetness and fresh acidity, with mouth-watering berry and cherry flavours framed by soft spice.


The Old Museum

Our Merlot pays homage to the rich settler history preserved by the old town museum. It is soft and juicy with attractive plum and black cherry aromas intertwined with herbal tea, liquorice and gentle oak spice.


Stone Bridge

Built in 1825, the scenic Franschhoek mountain pass boasts the oldest stone bridge still in use in South Africa. Pinotage is another home-grown marvel, and this fruit-driven example offers generous flavours of black cherries, clove and raspberry jam.


Baker Station

A wine with depth and interest reminiscent of the Sir Herbert Baker-named original station building. Brimming with exuberant mulberry and plum flavours, it has soft ripe tannins that provide a well-structured and balanced juicy finish.

Cabernet Sauvignon

The Churchyard

A wine that symbolises longevity, like the legacy of the original Huguenot families which has endured long after they were buried in the town’s original churchyard. Blackcurrants and violets captivate on entry, followed by concentrated dark berry flavours and spicy tobacco oak.

The Last Elephant

Merlot 60%; Cabernet Sauvignon 25%; Cab Franc 10%, Petit Verdot 5%.

An exclusive red blend made from the best batches the winery can produce every year. An iron fist in a velvet glove, this small-production wine is boldly expressive and well-rounded.

The nose brims with moreish dark fruit, showing blackcurrants, cherries, mulberries along with cedar wood, lead pencil and cigar box aromas. These develop in the glass and are joined by raspberry, spice and a hint of gaminess on the palate. The flavours are powerful but elegant, with fine tannins that continue to soften in the glass. A wine that lives up to the mystical legacy of the gentle giants that once roamed the mountains of the Winelands.
