Franschhoek Wine Valley

Winter in Franschhoek

While most hibernate during the colder months Franschhoek will be celebrating with a host of amazing experiences from 1 to 19 June, as it launches the exciting HH Campaign.

More often than not we’ve misspelt the word Franschhoek, using one H instead of two, so what better way than to reinforce the HH than with a fun winter campaign. Wineries, restaurants, retail and accommodation establishments have jumped on board with a range of not-to-be-missed offerings.

Guesthouses and boutique hotels will be offering a ‘two for the price of one’, where guests pay for one and stay for two. Participating establishments include L’Ermitage Franschhoek Chateaux & Villas, The Ivy Apartments, Goodings Grove Olive Farm and Mont Rochelle Hotel.

Enjoy a wine tasting at La Motte or La Borgougne Farm for you and your partner, but only pay for one! See all the campaign offerings here.

The 29th and 30th of May sees the start of the (very) popular Franschhoek Mystery Weekends. With the emphasis on mystery you’ll be guaranteed a weekend of wining and dining. Perfect for budding Wine Fundis and Gastronauts. The cost is R3 500 (self-drive) per couple and includes accommodation, breakfast, dinner and more. Don’t delay, book today!

And who can forget July, which is synonymous with the Franschhoek Bastille Festival (11 & 12 July). Berets, boots, red, white and blue, Franschhoek comes alive as it celebrates its French heritage. Wander at leisure through the village with its ample offerings or make your way to the Food & Wine Marquee for an afternoon, wine, food and live entertainment. Tickets, at R200 per person, are available directly from  

This is a mere taster of what you can expect. For a detailed list of offerings and events during the winter season visit Follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, using #franscHHoek as a means of staying in touch via social media.
