This was our first winery to visit in the area and frankly it was appalling. The staff clearly did not want us there even though I made it clear I had an intention to buy some wines. The person ‘attending’ us basically read through a...More

This was part of the red route and our least favourite. We chose 5 wines from the ‘lifestyle’ list but as neither of us liked any of them decided to try the more expensive ‘reserve’ tasting but we found those very sharp too. Don’t understand...More

Great wine tasting at Chamonix. The wines were tasted were excellent and top quality. The lady, Denise was excellent and knowledgeable. Thoroughly recommended tasting. Make sure you taste and buy a bottle of the 2009 chardonnay!

Well, who’s the star? Well, Joyce was a brilliant wine guide, but the wines shine equally for themselves. Compared to some of the other more commercial wineries Chamonix looks a bit old school but punches in a league light years above the competition. We’ve been...More

Great wine, fantastic service. We had a great waitress, who helped us have a fun and informed experience - we laughed at every pouring. This winery is all about the great wines, but with a great waitress also it was made all the more memorable....More
