A New Year with Old Favourites at Franschhoek Cellar

18 January 2023

Though things change – some things always stay the same… Like the quality of our wines!

We take great pride in creating dependably delicious wines, that you can feel proud to bring to your table, no matter the occasion.

We hope that your 2023 is filled with many things worth celebrating, and worth toasting to with Franschhoek Cellar wines.


Chef Karen’s Seafood Tagliatelle is bursting with oceanic flavours – with a dash of herbaceousness from the addition of fresh fennel. Combining the freshest calamari, salmon and mussels - this pasta is an absolute treat for seafood lovers, while remaining light enough to enjoy on a hot summer’s day.

Our suggested pairing for this delicious dish is the Our Town Hall Chardonnay. The lively-yet-balanced acidity of this wine complements and contrasts perfectly with the flavours of the Seafood Tagliatelle.

Experience this exceptional interplay of flavours by booking your table with us today.


If the festive celebrations have left your wine collection looking a little bare… It’s the perfect time to shop your favourite Franschhoek Cellar wines!

From moreish whites to sumptuous reds to beautiful bubbles… We’ve got the perfect wine for your every need.

If you’re in the mood to add a statement to your collection – the multi-awarded The Last Elephant Red Blend is always sure to impress… A boldly-expressive and well-rounded blend of exceptional character, it’s a must-have in every wine-lover’s collection.
