What a fantastic experience on the Franschoek Wine Tram! 10 stars from us. Take some time to research which estates you would like to visit to choose the best route. We chose the Grey route and stopped at Franschoek Cellar, Leopards Leap and Rickety Bridge as these were all child friendly options. We will definitely be back without the kids ;) Also, great service and food at the River Café.
More info about Franschhoek
Franschhoek is a very beautiful small town near Cape Town. It has an unofficial title as South Africa’s food capital, justified by the town’s French influence and borne out by the high number of award-winning restaurants, mostly headed up by classically trained chefs.
Franschhoek lies in a fertile vine-filled valley surrounded by imposing mountains in the Western Cape Province of South Africa. The area was originally allocated to French Huguenots escaping religious persecution in France in the 1680s. The Huguenots brought with them wine making skills and their legacy has left Franschhoek a quality wine producing region.
The drive into Franschhoek is spectacular; vineyards are planted all the way to the mountain slopes, the historic Cape Dutch homes are lovingly restored and, upon entering the town, you are greeted by a spotless solitary street lined with pavement café’s and alluring restaurants. The street ends at the Huguenot Monument, a fitting tribute to those that contributed to the town’s success... Show more
