Taking a Franschoek Wine Tram tour through the spectacular vineyards that cover the mountain slopes of the Franschoek Valley, settled by the French Hugeunots 300 years ago, who brought with them their age-old tradition of wine making, will offer you an experience of many world renowned wine farms in an up-close and personal way second to none.
The Franschoek Valley is considered to be the food and wine heartland of South Africa, with the perfect combination of the finest wines and world class cuisine that is laid on by top chefs, all delivered in an area renowned for its hospitality. The influence of the French Hugeunots is abundantly clear, from the picturesque village to the deeply embedded culture of bringing people together over fine wine and food to create a treasure trove of lasting memories.
With a variety of cellars, from large cellars that offer organised tours and wine tastings to small boutique wineries catering to those in search of something truly unique, there is something to suit all tastes, from plump reds to elegant whites and delicious sparkling wines. With more than 40 superb restaurants in Franschoek boasting the highest national and international culinary honours, there is no doubt that you will find the perfect cuisine to compliment the splendid wines you will discover.
The team at The Franschoek Wine Tram are proud to offer 4 different lines you are able to choose from, which may just mean that you will want to stay in Franschoek a bit longer than planned, and to cover that eventuality, we will assist you with arranging accommodation that will allow you to immerse yourself completely in the Franschoek Valley experience.
