Nestled between towering mountains in the beautiful Cape winelands lies the La Couronne Wine Estate. The farm has breath-taking views of the majestic Franschhoek mountains & vineyards, with the tranquility of the constantly flowing Berg river that runs through it.
Spectacular vineyards cover these mountain slopes settled more than 300 years ago by the Huguenots, who brought with them their age-old French wine and food culture.
La Couronne's key attractions include: a newly-opened wine-tasting centre, showcasing La Couronne's range of fine wines, for tasting and sales; wedding and conference facilities and our country style accommodation at Le Chais Villa in the village.
Wine-tastings at La Couronne offers visitors a memorable experience in a relaxed atmosphere while gathering fascinating information about the fruits of the vine.
During visits, purchases and orders of our wine can be made.
Cheese & snack platters for groups can also be ordered in advance.
