Franschhoek Wine Valley

Upload your #franscHHoekmoments to Instagram and WIN!

We invited a few talented local Instagrammers to join us for an afternoon of #franscHHoekmoments in the valley. We started with a food and wine pairing at Grande Provence, followed by a walk through the village, where we stopped at Reuben's Restaurant, David Walters' ceramics gallery, Huguenot Fine Chocolate and Franschhoek Wine & Clothing. The magnificent sunset was the perfect backdrop for sunset drinks and canapes at Haute Cabriere. Take a look at the beautiful #franscHHoekmoments captured and shared on Instagram:


Cheers #FranscHHoek, you beauty! #FranscHHoekmoments
