About Topiary Winery

The exquisite scenery of the mountains around Franschhoek provide the perfect backdrop to the Topiary Winery. This is a very special South African winery that is owned by an acclaimed, passionate French vigneron. In fact, it is the only winery in Franschhoek that is owned solely by French folk, which is wonderfully appropriate for this town, fondly known as Little France.

Philippe Colin purchased the Topiary farm in 2014 and began what has become a fantastically popular wine farm. Philippe is the winemaker, complementing his passion for wines by his being a fourth generation Burgundian wine farmer. He is renowned for his Chassagne Montrachet, and won the coveted Decanter regional trophy for the best white burgundy in 2013. He is also one of the guardians of the Colin-Deleger vineyard.

The boutique cellar sits perched amongst the gorgeous fynbos of the Western Cape, where birds and small animals abound. This is all at the foot of the Wemmershoek Mountain. Of course, the manicured gardens are also wonderfully tranquil, displaying excellent topiary work and creating a serene retreat in which to enjoy the wines.

Topiary Winery processes up to 64 tons of grapes with a sophisticated sorting line. After the grapes have fermented, the wines are matured in French oak barrels for at least one year.

Wine tastings are best enjoyed on the patio, which overlooks the topiary plants and boasts breath-taking views of three mountain ranges.

The vineyards here enjoy modern irrigation and planting techniques. They occupy 20 hectares, of which 10 hectares are Shiraz, eight are Cabernet and two are reserved for the acclaimed Chardonnay vineyard.
