Visitors to Franschhoek can now choose from no fewer than twenty-seven wine estates when booking their Franschhoek Wine Tram experience.
“We are very excited about the additions to our service,” says owner David Blyth. “Our passengers can look forward to stopping over at Anura Vineyards, Solms-Delta Wine Estate, GlenWood Vineyards, Paserene, Haute Cabrière and Môreson Wine Farm. All these estates joined us during the last quarter of 2018.”
Anura Vineyards and Solms-Delta Wine Estate are part of Franschhoek Wine Tram’s orange and purple routes. Passengers choosing to travel on the recently launched Franschhoek Wine Tram pink and grey routes can look forward to visiting Paserene, Haute Cabrière and Môreson Wine Farm. GlenWood Vineyards is part of the Franschhoek Wine Tram blue and green routes.
Over the past five years, Franschhoek Wine Tram has grown its offering from a short rail journey in a 32-seater open-sided tram visiting just two wine estates to a service that spans the entire Franschhoek Wine Valley.
Earlier this year, at the annual Provincial Lilizela Tourism Awards organised by the Western Cape Department of Economic Development and Tourism, Franschhoek Wine Tram was nominated for its invaluable contribution in the tourism industry, especially in Franschhoek, and received the Provincial Western Cape MEC Award at the ceremony.
“Franschhoek Wine Tram is honoured to be presented with such a prestigious award. This achievement would not have been possible without our valued staff, the support of the participating wine estates and the Franschhoek community as a whole,” says Blyth.
