Go Wine Tasting on Saturdays at La Petite Vigne

Petite Vigne is a boutique wine estate, 3,3 hectares in extent, planted to Cabernet Sauvignon. The size of the farm allows us to focus on excellence in the vineyard and the winery and to work at developing hand-crafted wines with depth and character.

La Petite Vigne is the realisation of Cyril Shands dream to own a small vineyard and produce limited quantities of good quality wines, hand-crafted with dedication and care. The farm itself was ear-marked as our perfect place to be when we first walked past it, up and down the Uitkyk street hill, on visits to Franschhoek a small fascination developed into a grand passion and there was great joy when destiny intervened and the property became ours a few years later.

The winery has been built to process the grapes off the farm and has the capacity to produce 10,000 bottles of wine annually. The modern winery has three 5,000Kg stainless steel fermenting tanks which are computer controlled and there are 5 smaller tanks for experimental and reserve fermentations. Traditional processes are used in the winemaking and maturation takes place in French oak barrels.
