Comprised of two farms, situated on opposite ends of the breathtaking Franschhoek Wine Valley, Haute Cabrière is something extraordinary. A rich history, a whimsical setting, a seductive approach to wine and a magnetic proprietor ensure that it is a decadent affair for any visitor. The core belief that wine is grown not made makes the farm’s ethos incredibly real and intrinsically human. Wine is more than what is in the bottle and it is considered an exceptionally intimate experience. This seductive conviction is intertwined with the farm’s ultimate philosophy that wine is bigger than one, it’s the combination of four factors: Sun, Soil, Vine, Man.
Following the tradition of the Champagne, our still wines are named after the property – Haute Cabrière – and our Méthode Cap Classiques are named after the original founder: Pierre Jourdan.
The classic ‘boozy wine farm Saturday lunch’ doesn’t get more real than at Haute Cabriere wine estate in Franschhoek. The home of Pierre Jourdan is kicking off Spring in style, and you’re invited!
Everyone remembers their 21st birthday, right? No? It was probably because it was THAT big a party and this year the Bastille Festival is celebrating its 21st… Things are going be unmissable and wild!
All that wine-tasting and training is about to come in handy, as it’s been revealed that wine buyers are not getting exactly what they’ve paid for, with Italian police uncovering a massive wine fraud scandal, with cheap imitations in circulation that look and appear just like the real thing.
Please enjoy Elvis Presley making a mockery of his pure raw sexual awesomeness. Now imagine this happening in 1970 – in the days when this vibe had NEVER been seen or experienced before. Think about that.
Do you see what’s happening with the weather today? Take a look. Take one damned good look. It’s gone to hell in a handbasket, and there are only a few decent days left. A dozen real stunners, if we’re lucky. You have to make those guys count – in that spirit we’ve put together this [...]
Pinot Noir – two words you’ve been hearing a lot, lately. The delicate grape has enjoyed some serious attention recently, and with the likes of Ard Matthews spouting these sorts of statements wherever he goes, we’re hardly surprised: “I’m convinced that Pinot Noir is one part heat-sensitive grape and 99 parts angel blood. It is the perfect blend between rosé and red, which means it can and must be drunk as often as possible, where possible, if possible.”
Brunch: it’s excellent. The combination of bubbly, soft poached eggs and hollandaise sauce is what is commonly referred to as “the holy trinity.” But some of you are doing it wrong, and you need to improve your lives.
Invariably, you’ll be invited to a friend’s house in the next three months for any number of reasons. It could be a birthday party, a job celebration, or an anniversary. Either way, it’s good manners to bring a gift, or a token of thanks. Heads up: everyone is going to be bringing flowers, or a bottle of red wine. You don’t want to be everyone, do you?
Having £1 million in the bank may be a dream for most, but when you’re the Queen of England that means you’re scraping the bottom of the barrel and eating moldy biscuits. But help is on the way, from the most unlikely of places. Can taking advice from Downton Abbey solve One’s dreary financial state?
Man… Where has this year gone? As 2014 slowly creeps upon us a good old friend called reflection kicks in, and hijacks our mind to think about the ups, downs and everything in between that occurred during 2013. Although it would be mind-blowingly impossible to summarize the year, the awesome filmmaker Jean-Louis Nguyen has done just that, creating a six minute video montage of the year’s most headline making moments.
Russia may have a lot of political baggage – but this is just silly. A giant, two-storey designer Louis Vuitton suitcase was erected on the red square, just metres away from Vladimir Lenin’s sacred mausoleum – where the mummified body of the mastermind of the Bolshevik Revolution remains.
Okay,okay we’re not saying that your local bottle store wont have any wine next time you stock up, we’re not saying that we need to start thinking of alternatives – we’re just saying that we haven’t really had to worry about this before, and it’s a little alarming. That’s all.
The No Danger Diaries crew did it again this morning, and found snow on Table Mountain. Apparently they even found some half way up! Well done, guys – you’ve won a bottle of Pierre Jourdan Brut! Click through for gallery..
Researchers from Bielefeld University in Germany are developing a robotic bartender, and in an effort to create an accurate facsimile of a real bartender, they set out to determine if bartenders were predisposed to serving certain customers over others. In the process, they accidentally uncovered how exactly to get served first at a bar. It’s all [...]
Some rich guy (or girl) just purchased a super rare 1967 Ferrari for $27,5 million (R279,034,843.84) and set a world record! The Ferrari 275 GTB/4*S N.A.R.T. Spider was sold on Saturday night in Monterey, California, and makes it the most expensive road car ever sold at an auction.
Unless you’re jamming a Nokia 5110 you would’ve realised by now that Kate Middleton, Dutchess of Cambridge, has given birth to a baby boy. Just incase you haven’t figured out what the birth of the Prince of Cambridge means for the Royal Line of Succession, this infographic will help you see who stands in the way of [...]
These moments don’t come along very often, friends. And it’s only a matter of time before Haute Cabriere’s powers that be change their minds. So best you MOVE!
French designer Cedric Ragot has come up with an innovative design to keep our celebratory champers chilled. Introducing the first 100% biodegradable isothermal packaging. Ragot has been able to create a durable and light material from potato starch, that not only holds the champagne bottle, but also keeps it cool for up to two hours. The video above gives you [...]
Read up on this amazing discovery on how champagne may be able to help you fight against brain disorders like Alzheimer’s and Dementia.
There are certain items that you will buy every month of your life. That is a fact. And without fail, it will always, always be a chore to head out into town, to battle traffic, and aggressive car guards, or aggressive city parking officials, and random road works, just so you can get to Waltons [...]
Look at all the 2oceansvibe partners. See how different they are from the rubbish freebies some people seem to love getting? Maybe then you’ll understand why we can only accept 100 of you to join the 2ov Top 100. This is how it works.
Roman Abramovich must be so upset about this. I would be. When you build yourself the biggest yacht in the world, having the biggest yacht IS a big deal. That’s how these guys work. And now Roman’s just going to have to DEAL with this beast, dubbed ‘Azzam.’
I have just settled down next to the heated pool. This after a game of tennis, some brekkie and a 10 minute steam followed by a shower. Things could be worse. How other hotels can claim to be 5-stars, I don’t know.
It’s a short work week. Which means that you’re highly likely to be drinking bubbles this coming Friday. So you might as well do it properly. And by properly, we mean by sabrage. What is sabrage? I’m so glad you asked: The opening of a bottle, normally of champagne, by slicing off the bottle’s neck with [...]

Given the extensive history between 2oceansvibe and our methode cap classique of choice, Pierre Jourdan (Seth’s parents planted some of the trees on the farm!), we found this story about the coat of arms at Haute Cabrière of the German von Arnim family very interesting. We think you will enjoy it too.
