Franschhoek Wine Valley


Solms-Delta Fyndraai Restaurant

 

The estate known as Delta was first planted to vines in the 17th century, but it was only in 2001 that it began to redress the painful history upon which the SA wine industry was built. This was done through the granting of a substantial shareholding to historically disadvantaged tenant-workers on the estate, and the establishment of a museum which provides visitors with an authentic experience that does not gloss over the facts. It explores our history from all points of view, with special emphasis on the personal experiences of dispossessed Khoe-San, pioneer settlers, slaves, and the current resident labourers — who remember only too well what it meant to be a farm-worker in the apartheid years – but also our hopes for the future.

Three wine ranges are produced at Solms-Delta. The Lifestyle Collection consists of 5 wines meant for laid-back occasions, the Heritage Collection is innovative and distinctly different and the Terroir Collection are “one of a kind” wines for singular moments.

Visitors to the Solms-Delta Estate can choose from a variety of activities including wine tasting, Fyndraai restaurant, picnics next to the river and tours covering the historical, musical and horticultural sites of the farm. A visit to the Museum van de Caab is a must. Weddings, special events and functions are popular and handled professionally by our in-house staff in various venues to suit every requirement.
