The French heritage originating from the Huguenots who settled in the valley more than three centuries ago, is the essence of Franschhoek's charm ! These French refugees brought with them their culture and viticultural knowledge. The "Vignerons de Franschhoek" lies cradled in the valley flanked on three sides by spectacular soaring mountains. Coupled with its cool climate this setting offers perfect conditions for growing fine wine grapes.
