The Cottage @ Montpellier Featured

Established in 1714 by two Frenchmen from the city Montpellier (“Spyseniersberg” or “Chef’s Mountain”) in France, this historic Cape Dutch Wine Estate recently celebrated its 300th anniversary. Steeped in a rich history of wine making, Montpellier is renowned for producing wines with integrity and character representative of the Tulbagh Valley terroir. Surrounded by three imposing mountain ranges, the Tulbagh Valley offers a unique climate ideal for viticulture exclusive to the Cape. Unlike many areas in the Western Cape, the summer nights are cool and fresh due to the massive surrounding mountains that are renowned for occasional summer snow caps, often as late as Christmas. A distinctive terroir and a wide variation of soil types enable the production of a diverse range of top-quality wines. Montpellier is part of the Tulbagh Wine Route known for featuring award-winning wines with integrity and character representative of this Tulbagh Valley terroir. Accommodations at Montpellier are warm and rustic, allowing you to simply let go and relax in our scenic tranquil environment. On a warm summer’s day enjoy a picnic and a chilled glass of Montpellier Chardonnay under the dappled light of the oak trees, or take a dip in the spacious pool looking out at the mountains and fields.
