Franschhoek has once again been voted by KLINK supporters as the best wine route in the Most Memorable Wine Route category, for the third consecutive year. In addition Franschhoek was also announced as the winner in the Crowd Pleaser category for the annual Franschhoek Bastille Festival. The results were announced at a special cocktail event in Cape Town on 13 November.
Conceptualized in 2012, the competition is the brainchild of Wine Tourism South Africa publisher, Monika Elias, whereby she (via the publication) invited foodies, wine lovers, outdoor adventurers and wine farm visitors to show their love and appreciation for South Africa’s Winelands, during the months of September and October, by voting for their favourite nominees in South Africa’s first ever, consumer-driven, interactive wine tourism awards.
‘As Brand Franschhoek we continually strive to keep Franschhoek top of mind with our local and international visitors, and it has paid off. We are extremely thrilled by this latest recognition and we owe our gratitude to the Franschhoek supporters,’ says Franschhoek Wine Valley CEO, Jenny Prinsloo.
