Best Wineries - 2-3 days in Franschhoek and Stellenbosch

Hi everyone, we're heading off to South Africa in 3 days for our first Africa adventure! We'll be spending 3 nights/2 days (or up to 3 days depending on when we drive out from Cape Town) at Mont Rochelle in Franschhoek. I am trying to make a bit of a plan for which wineries we will visit in the area and am overwhelmed by all the possibilities. Every list I find is different! What do you all recommend as the most important wineries to visit, in terms of best wines, best scenery, and for creating variety (ie, good chocolate pairing, good cheese pairing, other activities, etc.)? The wine tram seems to be a good transportation option, but many of the wineries at which it stops at are not on the top 10 lists I have found. We'd also be up for renting bikes and riding around.

Thanks!
