Background


The Mouton-Excelsior Vineyards are situated in the furthermost corner of the Franschhoek Valley. The farm nestles against the majestic Franschhoek peaks which makes for a spectacular setting and the cultivation of its wines at high lying slopes. Since 1984 the Mouton-Excelsior vineyards have been replanted with noble cultivars of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blane and Semillon.

Years of careful nurturing have finally resulted in the production of award winning wines and their acceptance in the international market. To continue along this road and improve on quality. the farming policy is to produce limited quantities of high quality wines at affordable prices to the wine lover.

The original wine cellar, built in 1875 on the farm, has been converted into "Die Binnehof" Wine House. The wine house offers daily tastings of the Le Moutonne wines. The rose gardens surrounding "Die Binnehof" and the cool green oaks are the perfect setting for picnics and cheese platters.
