Helicopter flight to Haute Cabriere

Haute Cabriere Wine Estate


The farm dates back to 22 December 1694 when the French Huguenot Pierre Jourdan was granted a piece of land in Olifantshoek, today known as Franschhoek, which he decided to name after his home town Cabrière.

In the early 1980’s Achim von Arnim, then still Cellar Master at Boschendal, purchased a portion of this land. His vision firmly set on the idea of producing wines in the style of the Champagne region.


A few years later, Achim discovered another piece of land, now known as Haute Cabrière, on the slopes of the Franschhoek Mountains, which reflected a similar type of terroir as Burgundy in France.


Haute Cabrière, grew to encompass a beautifully serene underground cellar built into the side of Franschhoek Mountain, which Achim opened in 1994, exactly 300 years after Pierre Jourdan had been granted Cabrière.
