Franschhoek Wine Valley

Franschhoek Vineyard Hopper

We are proud to re-launch the fun Franschhoek Vineyard Hopper to all guests staying within the Franschhoek region.

Guests can choose between a 4 hour and 7 hour Hopper Service.
Within this time guests are free to visit as many wine estates, restaurants or places of interest (from the list below) as they want to and are able to fit in the 4 or 7 hour period.

Unlike other services in the village, where guests are on a schedule and often part of large crowds, the Vineyard Hopper is totally flexible both in terms of where guests go and how long they visit each establishment.  This is ideal for guests or small groups of people who would like to do their own thing (perhaps do a special tasting or picnic for lunch).
