We did a wine tasting here on the day of our arrival in Franschoek. Although we arrived late, the staff were friendly and accommodating. The wine tasting was wonderful. Haute Carriere wines are great and we enjoyed the ambiance of the tasting room.

You can enjoy the wine tasting inside the lovely tasting room, or sit outside where you have a spectacular view of the Franschhoek valley. Come back to try both - as the atmosphere inside & outside differs a lot.
