In the Western Cape, in the valley of Franschhoek, nestled against the majestic Groot Drakenstein Mountains, and in the very heart of the Cape Winelands… lays a very special estate.
One of only twenty-nine original French Huguenot-settled farms, it’s easy to see why this land has inspired winemakers – and helped to bring them international recognition – for over 300 years.
It’s breathtaking. And, thanks to topographic diversity and a unique microclimate, the estate is blessed with unparalleled terroir.
Today at Normandie Est.1693 this gift from nature is partnered with uncompromising expertise in viticulture and passionate winemaking.
A harmonious marriage that has given birth to iconic wines: karen. a sophisticated, dry rosé; and Eisen & Viljoen, a deeply complex Bordeaux style red blend.
Now, after sourcing some of the finest grapes from the best terroirs in the region, the team at Normandie Est.1693 is proud to introduce an innovative new collection of wines to their well-established portfolio.
A collection that embodies all that Normandie Est. 1693 represents.
