As far as stops on the Franschhoek Wine Route go, The Franschhoek Cellar and its restaurant wasn't our favourite. The outside garden lunch area is unfortunately located alongside the busy main road, so your ambiance is affected by trucks, taxis and passers by shouting at...More

Like the toddler facility. Other wine farms/cellars can follow this example, as letting young children play relaxes both child and parent. Young children find the wine tasting route fairly boring, except of course The Franschoek cellar, who actually has staff to look after the children...More

Visited as part of the wine tram tour. A lovely place with super efficient and friendly staff. The wine was excellent and so were the chocolates. Wish we could have spent more time here.
