A celebration of women, wine and some gourmet gold


“Where there is a woman, there is magic.” No simpler but truer words have been spoken and so- this July, and all month-long, we raise our glasses to the wonderful women of SA; the mothers, grandmothers, daughters, sisters, aunts, cousins, friends, colleagues, teachers, leaders and business women that make our valley a whole lot more magical… happy Women’s Month to all!

Festivities aside, our beautiful village is abuzz with winter activities, alive with ambiance and a diverse beauty that comes from stark trees and vines preparing for the next sprout of seasonal growth and change.

Mystery weekends are also back in action and for all those itching for a little adventure with none of the usual planning pressures, this one is for you!

Set those calendars and get booking as the latter stretch of 2022 promises to hold high hopes for much goodness in our abundant valley.

For the Vignerons’ diary, the 16th August is set for the ‘Trade and Media tasting’, hosted at the exclusive Sandstone House with Chefs Reuben and Darren Badenhorst preparing culinary delights to accompany the finest wines from the valley with lunch.

We’re signing off with the proverbial ‘cherry on the top’ with recent news of our town making Time Magazine’s prestigious list of ‘World’s Greatest Places’ for 2022!

This collection includes 50 destinations from around the world that Time’s correspondents and contributors nominated for exploring because of the destination’s offer of “new and exciting experiences.”

As if you needed any further reasons to soak in the spectacular views, fine wines & quintessential Franschhoek gourmet gold… All that’s left to consider is the choice company you’d like to share it all with.

See you soon in the valley of dreams!
