Franschhoek is located within one of the most breathtaking parts of the Western Cape. The mountains in this area form a natural valley leading into the village. As you make your way into Franschhoek you will notice that most of the farms still bear their original French names, some complete with a spectacular Cape Dutch homestead, towering oaks and rolling vineyards. You will find an array of cellars, ranging from quaint boutique wineries that cater for those in search of something unique, to the large cellars that offer visitors organised tours and tastings. The fertile Franschhoek Wine Valley is home to some of South Africa’s noble cultivars and classic styles. These range from superb whites such as Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Semillon and Chenin Blanc, to the full-bodied reds of Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Pinot Noir and Merlot. The area also produces some of the country’s extraordinary Méthode Cap Classiques, which can all be enjoyed during a trip along the Franschhoek MCC RouteIt is here along this route that you will find some of South Africa’s most exquisite eateries. The best part is that you will find that almost all of the restaurants in this valley, of which the majority are based on wine estates, have beautiful outdoor seating areas where you can soak up the magnificent views and enjoy the fresh air and sunshine.
