Helicopter flight to Haute Cabriere

Haute Cabriere Wine Estate

OUR HISTORY

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.

English Pilot


ACHIM VON ARNIM

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.


HAUTE CABRIÈRE

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.


THE CELLAR

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.

I took my wife and son on the Penisula Tour from Franschhoek. Firstly our pilot Mauritz not only an excellent pilot but very knowledgeable and a wonderful sense of humour. This whole operation is very slick and very professional my thanks to Michelle who handled everything from the booking to sourcing a helipad in Franschhoek. We had a most wonderful experience and to see the Cape like that is awe-inspiring. Thanks, Takuan at Haute Cabriere for allowing us the use of your helipad. We will do this again. Thank you Cape Town Helicopters again for a simply amazing experience.

Keep these in mind

Check In Time

Please check in 20-30 minutes prior to your scheduled Take Off time. This will allow enough time for us to take weights, conduct a safety briefing and issue tickets. After this has been conducted you can relax on the viewing deck and take some great pre-flight pictures and enjoy the atmosphere.


Seating

Please be aware that seating allocation on all our sharing flights are done according to weight and balance which is done during your safety briefing and ticketing. Should you want to choose your own seats you can book an Exclusive Flight at the cost of one additional seat and you are guaranteed the ‘best seats in the house.

Best Pictures

For the best pictures we recommend that you wear darker coloured clothing as whites reflect off the inside of the windows and can spoil that epic shot. We do offer In Flight Video packages where we record you and your flight, including audio, and put it on a USB for you. Note that not all aircraft has this system available so please requests this on check in.


Weather

All flights are weather dependent. Should the conditions not be ideal for flying we will try to reschedule to the next best available flight window. Note that the temperature in the sky is exactly the same as on the ground in case you are wondering what to wear.
