Val du Charron Wines (Pty) Ltd

Description

In 2006, the Entwistle Family purchased the 45 Ha farm in the historic Bovlei valley, ten minutes from the town of Wellington, and under an hour’s drive from Cape Town and re-established the winemaking tradition that started there back in 1699.
The Entwistles christened the farm Val du Charron as a tribute to the rich history and culture of the area.  Val du Charron means Valley of the Wagonmakers. This was the original name of the Wellington valley. The French influence stems from the Huguenots who settled in the area in the early 1700’s while the reference to wagon making refers to the fact that Wellington was the last town where the Afrikaner’s ox wagons could be serviced before heading over the majestic Bainskloof in to the hinterland.
In 2012, Val du Charron itself became an Estate label i.e. all wines under the Val du Charron labels are bottled, produced and come from vines grown on the farm itself; thus giving a pure expression of the terroir to be found on Val du Charron’s southerly facing slopes.

Restaurant

Description
We have 2 onsite restaurants: The Grillroom and Pizza Vista
The Grillroom is simply nirvana for carnivores: grain-fed and grass-fed beef, dry or wet aged between 22 and 55 days, features prominently on the menu. From a wide variety of cuts through to gourmet burgers, there is a lot of beef to choose from but we also have seafood, chicken and vegetarian options to choose from. Trawling the extensive menu could take a while, enjoy it with a glass of the Estate’s award winning wines. If you love meat as we do, though, this is a little bit of heaven with views to match.

Airy, understated European elegance epitomizes the restaurant’s interior, which is glass fronted to showcase the panoramic views from the vineyards and olive orchards to the blue-hued mountains that encircle Wellington. On a sunny day choose a table on the deck and sit side-by-side to enjoy the natural theatre.

Our family friendly Pizzeria, Pizza Vista Restaurant, is the place to hang out on a lazy day or after a long ride on our mountain bike trails.
While mom and dad are having lunch, kids can cool down at our water park located on our lawn in front of the restaurant.
Pop in and choose from a variety of pizzas, calzones and delicious pasta dishes and wash it all down with a craft beer or a thirst-quenching cocktail. It really is a family fun affair at Pizza Vista. OPEN Tues - Sat 12:00- 21:00CLOSED Mondays (unless it is a Public holiday) and sunday nights.
