Franschhoek Valley Welcomes Country Grand

25 May 2022

Grand Collection is proud to announce the opening of Country Grand, a free-spirited countryside cafe', nestled in the cool valley and picturesque slopes of the Franschhoek mountains.

Location, location …

Franschhoek lies in one of the most beautiful wine valleys in the world, just 45 minutes from Cape Town and within half an hour of the Stellenbosch, Paarl, Wellington, and Somerset West wine routes. This traditionally French town is the food and wine capital of the country. 

Originally known as the Valley of the Huguenots, many of the wine farms still bear their original French names. Dieu Donné, the new home of Country Grand, is a prime example. Translated as "A gift from God", the name could not be more fitting. With panoramic views of the Franschhoek valley, neighbouring Stellenbosch and Drakenstein mountain ranges, the quiet creeks and vast vineyards of Dieu Donné bode the perfect sanctuary for this unique Countryside Café.

At Grand Collection, our passion is to deliver premium food & lifestyle experiences to our consumers. Our values of creativity, collaboration & culture drive us to provide the community the value & values they deserve.

Expect to be welcomed with a refreshing cocktail and a menu of dreams- surrounded by the most breath-taking views. This is a match made in heaven. We can’t wait to welcome our Franschhoek family and be your new home away from home. A harmonious blend of nature, food, and countryside chic await.
