The Franschhoek Cellar ‘The Churchyard Cabernet Sauvignon’ is named after one of Franschhoek’s Franschhoek’s historical landmarks, the churchyard.
Our Town Hall was built in 1935 in the popular gabled Cape Dutch revival style. Much like the character of our Franschhoek Cellar Our Town Hall Chardonnay, this historical building follows seamless lines and gentle curves to preserve the natural heritage and architecture of the village, yet still expresses itself boldly.
Old mill houses were once a common feature on the landscape of the valley, and La Cotte is one of the only original mills that have survived the march of time.
Established in 1954, the old museum houses a fascinating yet gentle journey through the early pioneer life and times in the Franschhoek valley chronicling intriguing geneology of the original Huguenot settlers.
This graceful monument was built in celebration of the 250th anniversary of the arrival of the French Huguenots in the Cape and stands surrounded by a beautiful rose garden.
With guts and endurance that finds synergy with our Franschhoek Cellar Baker Station Shiraz, Franschhoek’s well preserved original station building is reminiscent of the work of the lauded British architect, Sir Herbert Baker.
The Franschhoek Mountain pass boasts Jan Joubert’s Gat bridge. Built in 1825, this is South Africa’s oldest stone bridge that still in use and makes the most magnificent picnic spot immersed in the full splendour of our magnificent valley.
Named for the legendary Club House at Drakenstein Golf Club and aptly styled for easy social enjoyment.
Semillon has small plantings in the Cape, yet it is a varietal capable of much grace and beauty. When our winemaker Richard Duckitt came upon a 75 year old block of bush vines, he could not resist experimenting with the rare and remarkable fruit.
The grapes for this wine are from one of the highest most rugged Shiraz vineyard sites in Franschhoek with singular personality and expression that compels our winemaker Richard Duckitt to go to great lengths to preserve the extraordinary concentration and purity of fruit in this quintessential Franschhoek wine.
