Things to Pack for your Wine Tasting Experience with the Franschhoek Wine Tram

Embarking on a wine tasting adventure with the Franschhoek Wine Tram is an exciting and memorable experience. To ensure you have a seamless, comfortable, and enjoyable journey, it’s important to pack a few essentials. In this blog post, we’ll guide you on what to pack to ensure you make the most of your wine tasting experience in Franschhoek. So grab your bags and let’s get started!

Comfortable Footwear

Opt for comfortable footwear such as walking shoes or sandals to explore the wineries and vineyards without any discomfort. On colder days, wear comfortable and warm footwear to keep your feet cosy during vineyard walks and wine tastings. You’ll want to focus on savouring the flavours, not worrying about sore or cold feet!

Sunscreen and Hat

In the summer months, our South African sun can be quite intense, especially during wine tasting and lunch sessions held in beautiful outdoor settings. Protect your skin from harmful UV rays by packing sunscreen with a high SPF and a wide-brimmed hat or cap. This way, you can enjoy the glorious sunny weather without worrying about sunburn!

Layers of Clothing

Franschhoek’s weather can be unpredictable, even during the same day. Be prepared for temperature changes by dressing in layers. It’s always wise to pack a light jacket or a sweater, especially for the cooler days. And on very cold and rainy days, think knitwear, jackets and scarves! Layering allows you to adjust your clothing according to the changing weather and ensures your comfort throughout the day.

Camera or Smartphone

Trust us, you’ll want to capture the breathtaking vineyard landscapes and memorable moments during your Wine Tram journey. Pack your camera or smartphone to take photos and create lasting memories.

Bag with Wine and Gifts

Reusable Tote Bag

Purchasing bottles of wine along the way is something you’ll probably want to do. Be prepared by bringing a reusable tote bag along to safely carry your wine purchases. You can also purchase our Wine Tote Bag at the Terminal, which is handcrafted by a local charity, and you’ll receive wine purchase discounts at participating wine estates. It’s a practical and eco-friendly choice that ensures your precious bottles are well-protected during your travels!
