Winter in the winelands at Mont Rochelle

8th February 2017

As winter arrives in South Africa, get cosy with a stay at Mont Rochelle Hotel and Mountain Vineyard. With roaring fires, fantastic food and wine, and a complimentary night on us for stays of four nights or more, it’s the perfect hideaway.

A glass of Mont Rochelle’s Miko Red is the ultimate winter treat for wine lovers, featuring complex flavours of blackberry fruits, pepper and spice. For those looking to try something new, wine tastings can be arranged in a variety of locations including the historic 150 year old cellar. Foodies will enjoy a selection of dishes from comforting classics to light bites at the two on-site restaurants. Try Country Kitchen’s local cheese and charcuterie platters with a glass of wine by the fireplace, or pull out all the stops at Miko with a pan fried beef fillet accompanied by fondant potatoes, roasted baby leeks and port jus.

Guests hoping to take some time out for rest and relaxation will be welcome to indulge in the spa. Those looking for a little nourishment during the winter months will love the Cape Malay Spice Journey, a ritual that uses a bespoke blend of spices, herbs and essential oils to stimulate the body’s healing ability. Part of this unique experience takes place in the Hammam where guests can relax and let the spices work their magic.

Rates start from ZAR 4,580 per room, per night based on double occupancy. Guests booking a stay of four nights or more will receive their final night for free.
