Mont Rochelle is Sir Richard Branson’s South African hotel and vineyard and boasts 26 stunning rooms and suites. It is less than an hour’s drive from Cape Town to the beautiful town of Franschhoek.
The grounds at Mont Rochelle cover 39 hectares (about 100 acres) and guests are encouraged to go exploring and to enjoy a picnic on the estate. The kitchen can arrange a well-stocked picnic basket with a chilled bottle of wine (or two!). There are two restaurants, a cosy bar, a spa, a gym and a heated outdoor pool. That’s not forgetting a 37-hectare vineyard and wine cellar of course!
At Mont Rochelle Vineyard they cultivate grapes of the Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Merlot, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon varieties amongst a few others. The vineyards are situated between 250m and 400m above sea level exposing the grapes to a range of microclimates. Mediterranean-like conditions found in the Western Cape means dry summers and high winter rainfalls of 1000mm. The Franschhoek Valley also experiences the Southeaster which helps bring in cooler air allowing for a longer ripening period.
Wine tastings in a variety of locations on the property can be arranged from in the Miko Restaurant, at the bar, at the Country Kitchen or in the 150-year-old wine cellar.
