When selecting a wine tram route, it isn’t really about making the “wrong” choice as much as it is about picking the best option for you. Everybody has different tastes and craves different experiences and this is exactly why we have six different routes to choose from as well as a curated wine tour. Before we choose a wine tram route, let’s look at what the wine tram is all about.

The wine tram has been operational since 2012, transporting wine lovers from wine farm to wine farm while teaching them about the history of Franschhoek as well as wine making in South Africa. This unique experience enables tourists (and locals) to visit wine estates at a leisurely pace while indulging in the beauty nature has to offer. It’s no secret that the Franschhoek Valley hosts some of the most spectacular scenery in South Africa, if not the whole world. Rolling vineyards and magnificent mountains paired with exquisite wines and fine cuisine – what better way to spend your day?
