Fall in Love With Franschhoek in Autumn at Franschhoek Cellar

17 March 2023

Watching the Franschhoek Valley change colours with the season is especially magical.

Looking out to the fields and mountains, the shades of deep red, orange and soft browns show us that winter is approaching – but the warm days remind us that there’s still plenty of sunshine left.

Savour the beauty of this season by joining us for a lunch or dinner with a view, to take in the splendour of the Franschhoek Valley.

Hop off the Red Bus at Franschhoek Cellar!

We’re happy to announce that Franschhoek Cellar is now a stop along the route of the iconic City Sightseeing Red Bus!

You can now visit our tasting room, join us for lunch and shop our exceptional wines on your way around the wine route.

The Red Bus is simply a must when sightseeing around Cape Town and its surrounds – not just for tourists, but also for locals to discover new gems or visit old favourites.

We look forward to welcoming you to Franschhoek Cellar, and we hope you’ll stay a while!

Autumn’s perfect wine:

Our Club House Rosé is a superb choice for Autumn’s cooler days.

This beautiful blush wine has a crisp and dry quality to it that perfectly echoes the freshness of the Franschhoek Valley’s air in the Autumn months.

You can look forward to a sumptuous palate with berries and cherries, tinged with discreet spice… The soft, dry finish is undoubtedly moreish, making this Rosé a winner year-round, but especially in the Autumn months.

Enjoy it at afternoon picnics, soaking in the last glimpses of Summer, around the braai, or any moment spent in good company.

Bring home your favourites:

April’s long weekends and holidays are around the corner… Be sure to stock up on your tried and true Franschhoek Cellar favourites to ensure you’ve got the perfect wines to pair with feasts and lazy days.

Our Brut Rosé and Brut Royale are must-haves for any celebration, while our Rosé and white wines are ideal for long and lavish lunches.

For roasts, braais and stews, our Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Pinotage and Merlot are always a welcome addition to the table.

If you’re celebrating something special, or perhaps reuniting with family and friends, why not treat yourself and others to a bottle of The Last Elephant? This multi-awarded, small-batch red blend is truly extraordinary, and sure to impress the wine lovers in your life.

Savour something decadent:

The cooler weather calls for comfort food – and few things beat a tender and indulgent lamb shank.

Our roasted lamb shank is accompanied by a deliciously smooth Potato Purée and seasonal greens. We recommend pairing it with a glass of Franschhoek Cellar Cabernet Sauvignon, and toasting to the cozy months to come.
