Grande Provence Estate

Grande Provence Estate wears her 300-year history with dignity. Sitting in the magnificent Franschhoek Valley in South Africa’s Western Cape, her lush vines spread across 30 hectares with gentle vistas over the valley floor, at odds almost with the rugged mountains beyond. This is heartland South African wine country.

Capturing the essence of the heritage of this gracious Estate, are Grande Provence’s design team. The honest simplicity of its Cape Dutch architecture, in harmony with the precision and clarity of modern design, brings a new pièce de résistance to the Franschhoek valley, which is already richly enhanced by the heritage of its early French Huguenot settlers.

Framing the entry road are rows of vineyards, heavy with the promise of next year’s vintage. Here, one bears witness to the duality of old and new settling into an elegant co-existence: old trees take root amongst the 300-year old oaks and manicured hedges blend with the free form of the natural surroundings to create a landscaped Eden. Gracefully governing the setting is the 18th Century Manor House, while The Owner’s Cottage welcomes guests to boutique accommodation. Five sumptuous rooms provide a quiet and intimate repose; the tranquility of the lake provides a restful escape for the soul.

Grande Provence Heritage Wine Estate is a destination in its own right. The Estate offers guests the opportunity to taste its own elegant, award-winning wines, and better still experience how superbly they complement the cuisine of Executive chef, Darren Roberts, at The Restaurant. This establishment has a reputation for clever combinations of flavours, beautiful presentation as well as attentive service. The Jonkershuis is perfect for a private reception, an exquisite small wedding or a small conference. Nearby, The Gallery regularly exhibits the work of South Africa’s emerging, as well as most established artists. The Shop presents a carefully selected collection of art and craft within the context of a sophisticated interior design setting.
