Grande Provence, an all-in-one travel destination for wine aficionados

Discerning travellers looking to explore the heartland of South African wine country will definitely want to learn more about what Grande Provence has to offer – especially when it comes to unforgettable experiences revolving around top wines and exquisite food.

The History 1694 saw the arrival of Pierre Joubert and other Huguenots in Olifantshoek, which today is known as Franschhoek. His escape from religious persecution brought him to the country, which allowed him to establish the roots of Grande Provence. From that point on, the farm grew and grew until it was ultimately developed it into the icon of wine, cuisine, and hospitality that it is today.

The Winery

The various vintages that Grande Provence produces are the heart and soul of the estate. The juicy and elegant palate of Pinot Noir, the complex and powerful aroma of Shiraz, the elegantly dry Chenin Blanc Voignier, the balance of fruit and wood in Chardonnay, the fruity snap and crisp finish of Rosé, the minty earthiness of Grande Provence Red – these are but a handful of the award-winning vintages on offer. Intrepid guests that want to sample the fruits of Grande Provence can sign up for tastings, tours and wine-blending activities for an all-in-one experience.

The Restaurant

Good wine goes best with good food – which is why Grande Provence tasks its executive chef to offer a variety of menus that cater to the palates of even the most discerning guests. From a Canapé menu filled with pastry delights and picnic programmes that are best enjoyed on the grounds to the full nine-course Grande Provence Gourmand Dégustation Menu, travellers will not be left wanting for a good meal during their stay on the estate.

The Gallery

The Gallery at Grande Provence is a prestigious and highly regarded gallery. It showcases not just the most established names in South African art but also the most promising emerging artists in recent years. The Gallery covers works in all major disciplines, with exhibitions regularly being shown throughout the year. This ensures that art lovers will be able to slake their thirst for both wine and the aesthetic as they explore the estate of Grande Provence.

The Programmes

Grande Provence also offers a wide array of programmes that cater to the more specific needs of the various guests that step through its gates. From gourmet programmes for the gastronomically inclined and wine lover programmes for wine aficionados and aspiring vintners to family programmes to accommodate the special needs of children and escape programmes that aim to please the senses and rest the soul, and from fly-In programmes where guests can ride a helicopter and enjoy a gourmet lunch before flying back to continue their business and corporate retreat programmes to reward a job well done, to honeymoon programmes and top off a once-in-a-lifetime event with an unforgettable vacation.
