Chamonix

Franschhoek, South Africa

Chamonix owns vineyards above the town running from 380 to 600 metres in altitude, planted from 1998.

Just wanted to say thank you so much for sending my order of 2 x Domaine Begude Rosé to my son and daughter-in-law - I couldn't believe that they received it within a day of my placing the order with you. That is IMPRESSIVE, especially given the current trying times.
