Mont Rochelle Hotel and Vineyard

Franschhoek Wine Valley


Mont Rochelle is a 26-bedroom hotel and vineyard of some 13ha that became part of Richard Branson's Virgin Limited Edition collection in 2014. It cultivates amongst others Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Merlot, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon to produce its range of single variety and blended wines. The farm's history dates to 1688, when title deeds were first granted to the de Villiers family in 1688. The merging of the former La Couronne property and neighbouring Mont Rochelle Mountain Vineyards in the early 2000s gave rise to the estate in its current form.
