Mont Rochelle is Virgin Limited Edition’s mountain vineyard in South Africa’s Western Cape. Contrary to popular belief, luxury doesn’t have to come at the expense of sustainability, and we’ve been working hard to make sure one doesn’t compromise the other.
We are in a unique position to be able to serve a range of high quality wines that are produced entirely on-site. The hotel and our two restaurants also serve food and wines purchased from nearby producers, supporting local businesses and economies. It’s all about local sourcing to ensure maximum economic benefit to the community and minimal transport and ‘food miles’. In addition, Mont Rochelle is committed to responsible supply chain management, fair trade policies, ethical dealings with employees as well as the local community, and of course the environment. We have eliminated the need for plastic bottles, and now serve filtered water in branded glass bottles which are washable and can be reused again and again.
