The Franschhoek Valley is regarded by many as one of the most spectacular wine regions in the world. Its history dates back to the 17th century when the area was farmed by Huguenots settlers. Today, Franschhoek evidences that legacy with its many French town, street, and property names. The valley is enclosed on three sides by mountains and offers magnificent views of the many vineyards.
