As one of the more intimate wineries in the Cape Winelands, La Petite Ferme takes pride in delicately hand-crafting its wines using time as its artisan, with constant respect for terroir.
International accolades accredit the winemaker’s precise attention to detail and a selection is available either at the farm or in limited edition at selected retailers. La Petite Ferme was crowned Top Producer at the 2013 Michelangelo Awards.
Listed as one of the top 15 ‘Best Value’ establishments in the world by Condé Nast Traveller, the cuisine incorporates an influence of international methods and flavours, made from the freshest locally sourced produce. Chefs Neethling du Toit and Tanya Rousseau believe in the presentation of uncomplicated dishes filled with natural flavours in each elegantly unique dish.
The contemporary-rustic cuisine reflects the creative energy of La Petite Ferme. The restaurant exudes a warm and welcoming space with a fresh flow, basked in natural sunlight, and a dedicated staff compliment to complete the winning formula.
The distinguished hillside hospitality and wine estate, La Petite Ferme, is situated upon the slopes of Oliphants Pass and Middagkrans Mountain overlooking the Franschhoek Valley. A multi-award winning boutique wine estate offering private, traditional country-style luxury accommodation.
La Petite Ferme accommodation set amongst vineyards on a working wine farm, boasting magnificent views from the variety of beautifully appointed suites. The rooms are warm and cosy for cold, wet winters and equally air conditioned and cool for hot summers, where a dip in the pool is a welcome respite from the midday sun.
