An exceptional wine tasting experience that will take you on a trip of Mont Rochelle’s rolling vineyards…
You don’t have to be the world’s savviest oenophile to enjoy a tasting at Mont Rochelle. Part of the Virgin Limited Edition portfolio, this idyllic property is all about guilty-pleasured luxury and not a sniff of pretence. For those who don’t know what a wine flight is, it’s essentially a selection of wine, and commonly offered by Franschhoek’s estates to showcase their produce. Mont Rochelle has devised an exceptional one that will take you on a trip of our rolling vineyards.
The contemporary Country Kitchen is the perfect place to pull up a stool and drink in unhindered views of the Franschhoek Valley. You have eight of our estate’s wines from which to mix and match. The options range from our latest lifestyle white, Little Rock 2020, its grape juice fermented at 12 degrees to preserve the aromatic flavours, to the flagship Miko Red, a three-component blend matured for 24 months in oak barrels.
If you’re looking to line your stomach, our gourmet menu offers moreish plates such as baby marrow and chickpea taquitos with lemon mayonnaise and pickled onion. The Chardonnay, a favourite tipple of Sir Richard Branson’s, pairs lovingly with a panko crusted goat’s cheese and light tahini dressing. The peppery blackcurrant notes of the Syrah invites richer delicacies like grilled beef sirloin with a balsamic reduction or chorizo and gorgonzola.
If you can’t get enough, our team will happily package some bottles for your onward trip or even ship your favourite blends home. However our estate’s reach is far and wide and the team can suss out your nearest distributor.
