We went to Mont Rochelle for a wine tasting and little did we know we'd get an all round experience. We were absolutely charmed by the passionate explanations, the wonderful staff, and the absolutely superb quality of the food. I highly recommend the cheese platter...More

Just opened- and Mr Branson's latest acquisition. You can stay at hotel and go to dinner at Indochine restaurant- or just visit and go for a wine tasting and casual lunch. Superb views across the valley and great friendly service.

Really slow service at wine tasting and uninformed staff. Not what we expected from Richard Branson. The farm has such a rich heritage but we were super disappointed in the atmosphere, service and staff. The wine was also below average compared to what we expected....More

The tour given by the Mont Rochelle people is brief but very nice. The wines are also good. Especially the red ones.

We had some amazing Chardonnays at this winery.  They also do food which looked good - sadly we were too full to eat anything.  The view from the front of the winery is stubborn.  Worth visiting.
