The Western Cape Sights

Fodor's Review

Dating from 1811, the archetypal Cape Dutch manor house is festooned with flowers and framed by majestic peaks, but instead of remaining in the past, this winery has embraced the future and pumped serious money into a major revamp. Two state-of-the-art cellars were launched in 2007 as part of the farm's long-term plans to produce exceptional wines. Chat with the winemakers and they'll tell you that the farm has introduced revolutionary farming practices, from transporting

the grapes to the cellar in cool trucks to hand-sorting and -stemming. The results are impressive. The sangiovese is a brilliant, light drinking wine, and the pinot grigio is always a pleasure. When you've had enough of the wine, you can visit the Franschoek Motor Museum on the estate. It's home to more than 80 cars of varying ages in mint condition.
