Situated against the Klein Dassenberg mountains, you will find the quaint boutique cellar of Mont Rochelle, with its unique character and layout due to its historic Cape Dutch origin with a mediterranean twist. Previously a fruit packing shed, the cellar dates back 150 years. Whether you choose to have a regular wine tasting, a food pairing tasting, or even a picnic basket, you will definitely enjoy Mont Rochelle.
