Food, Wine & Nightlife in Franschhoek

Tour description provided by Viator

Discover fabulous Franschhoek and taste classic French Huguenot heritage wines whilst surrounded by some of South Africa’s most spectacular views.
The famed wine growing region Franschhoek gets its heritage from the French Huguenots who first settled there in 1688. This spectacular wine growing region boasts some of the most dramatic views due to the towering mountainous surrounds that cascade onto the vineyard laden valley floor.  Rub shoulders with one of South Africa’s most renowned families, the Ruperts, in partnership with famed French family, the Rothschilds with a visit to their joint winery venture Rupert & Rothschild Vignerons where you will sip on world-class wines. Next up enjoy award-winning estate wines from biologically-grown grapes at La Motte, while browsing an extensive selection of art, including famed SA artist, JH Pierneef’s heritage collection, followed by a wander through the sculpture garden. Influenced by the French tradition of Champagne, the Franschhoek wine valley has been regarded as South Africa’s leading Méthode Cap Classique (MCC) producing area, blending Old World traditions with New World thinking. Start the day with bubbly and canapé pairing at a boutique, family owned estate that specializes in sparkling wine. Taste classic French Huguenot heritage wines from one of the highest planted vines in the Cape Winelands, in the cosy converted “Blacksmith’s Cottage.”
