Toast the harvest at Mont Rochelle

20th February 2017

This March Mont Rochelle Hotel & Mountain Vineyard invites budding vintners to experience the rich traditions that go into every drop of Mont Rochelle wine with its Harvest Festival.

On Saturday 11th March guests will be welcomed to Country Kitchen for a light breakfast before being chauffeured, wine maker style, by tractor into the heart of the vineyard. From here guests will experience the entire wine making process first-hand; from picking the grapes to stomping, blending and storing in the historic wine cellar. After learning what it takes to create the perfect vintage, guests will have the opportunity to taste Mont Rochelle’s collection of fantastic wines from crisp, clean whites to intense reds, perfectly paired with a three-course lunch.

Tickets cost from R750.00 per person and bookings can be made by telephone +27 (0) 21 876 2770 or email
