Franschhoek Wine Valley


Rickety Bridge Winery

When visiting Rickety Bridge today, one still crosses a bridge over the Franschhoek River to enter this picturesque sanctuary, which offers much more than the conventional wine estate. Today this Franschhoek wine estate is home to a modern boutique-style winery producing award-winning wines, a ‘tasting centre in the vines’ where one can enjoy the estate’s various wine ranges, and Paulina’s, a popular à la carte restaurant, which also offers gourmet picnics for groups. In addition, the property boasts luxurious 4-star accommodation, a romantic wedding and function venue, a conference centre, a boules court, scenic walks and a playground for children. Rickety Bridge is also one of the designated stops for the popular Franschhoek Wine Tram, and the estate is only 3 kilometres from the quaint village of Franschhoek.
