Dieu Donné is situated high on the steep south-west facing slopes of the Franschhoek Mountains, encouraging a cool climate and combined with the rocky soils of weathered granite, a unique terroir has been created.

Grande Provence Estate, Franschhoek, is a destination in its own right, offering award-winning wines at The Winery, gourmet cuisine at The Restaurant, South African artists and artisans at The Gallery and The Shop.
