Book your Winter Staycation at Mont Rochelle, Franschhoek
Winter is around the corner and what better way to make the cold go by in a flash than by booking a short getaway? We’re spoilt for choice when it comes to nearby spots to escape to and none more special than the stunning Franschhoek valley and Sir Richard Branson’s 26-bedroom hotel and vineyard, Mont Rochelle.
Stay at Mont Rochelle
In an area internationally renowned for its winelands and stunning scenery, Mont Rochelle boasts a unique hilltop setting and private vineyard encompassing 39-hectares. This picturesque corner of South Africa, at the foot of the Klein Dassenberg mountain range, is the perfect spot for relaxation, as well as enjoying a superb culinary experience, accompanied by some outstanding Mont Rochelle wines.
Dine at Mont Rochelle
Foodies can choose between two restaurants, Miko and the Country Kitchen. Situated within the main hotel, Miko is a fantastic setting for gourmet meals, with menus featuring international dishes with a healthy nod to the varied nature of South African cuisine.
If you’re after something a little more casual, adjacent to the winery and just a short walk from the hotel, is the Country Kitchen. It’s an ideal spot for a light lunch accompanied by a chilled glass of Mont Rochelle Sauvignon Blanc.
Wine at Mont Rochelle
There’s no better place to sample Mont Rochelle’s very own wine collection than overlooking the vineyards where the grapes were originally picked and processed in the nearby wine cellars. If you want to uncover where the magic really happens, why not step into the wine cellar? Dustin Osborne is Mont Rochelle’s resident winemaker who’ll tell you everything you need to know; just make sure you book ahead for a cellar tour before visiting.
