Old mill houses were once a common feature on the landscape of the valley, and La Cotte is one of the only original mills that remain. This artisanal workhouse was restored in 1989 by the Franschhoek Conservation Trust in association with our Franschhoek Cellar. Our Chenin Blanc pays homage this valued landmark.
Service and Cellaring
Best served chilled at 6°C to 8°C for delicious easy drinking with or without food. Great with sushi, roast chicken, creamy pasta, veal schnitzels or fisherman’s pie. Optimally intended for enjoyment in the vibrant freshness of youth, yet may be cellared for up to 3 years from vintage.
Franschhoek, a village renowned for its French Huguenot heritage is nestled between towering mountains in the beautiful Cape winelands. Franschhoek Cellar combines the charms of leisurely country life with the elegance of a world class venue. Franschhoek Cellar offers a distinctive range of single varietal wines capturing the vibrant character and charm of this magnificent valley of wine. Our wine philosophy is centred around elegance and refinement. A new edition, The Last Elephant, sits at the pinnacle of the portfolio highlighting the history of the Olifant’s Hoek (Elephants Corner) as homage to the elephants that previously roamed the Franschhoek Valley.
