Franschhoek Wine Valley

Franschhoek Wine Valley Impresses Industry Critics

Internationally renowned wine critics, Jamie Goode and Treve Ring recently visited the Franschhoek Wine Valley where they were given the opportunity to sample some of the area’s finest wines. Regarded as one of South Africa’s formidable wine producing regions, Jamie and Treve also had the pleasure of meeting with the Vignerons who were able to give them deeper insight into some of the varietals the valley has become known for. During their visit, which took place over a few days, they tasted a wide range of wines from the valley. Wines included Semillon, Chardonnay, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and other niche varietals. 

Jamie and Treve, who together write for the industry’s leading website, Wine anorak, thought they knew all that they needed to know about Franschhoek, but left with a sense of renewed knowledge about the valley and its producers. 

The visit resulted in an in-depth article of their experience where they share their top wines from the region. To see which wines they ranked as their favourites click on the link below:
