Grande Provence Heritage Wine Estate

Grande Provence Estate

Grande Provence lies in the Franschhoek Valley in the heartland of South African wine country.
The 30 hectares provides views of the valley with the surrounding mountains as backdrop.

Framing the entry road, are rows of vineyards, heavy with the promise of next year’s vintage. Here, one bears witness to the duality of old and new where new trees take root amongst the 300-year old oaks and manicured hedges blend with the free form of the natural surroundings.
