Mont Rochelle

Hotel & Mountain Vineyards

Situated against the Klein Dassenberg mountains, you will find our quaint boutique cellar, with its unique character and layout due to its historic origin. Previously a fruit packing shed, the cellar dates back 150 years.

The vineyards were first planted in 1994. In 2001 Miko Rwayitare bought the farm and became the first black African to own a wine farm in South Africa.

The philosophy is simple, “keep it traditional”. Keeping it traditional allows all the wines to develop as mother nature intended, only when absolutely necessary does the winemaker step in and intervene. This philosophy allows us to produce wines that are easy drinking, well structured and of high quality that will be fit for any occasion. Quality comes as second nature here and we strive to produce nothing but that.
