rickety bridge chefs table

The rickety bridge straddling the Franschhoek River takes you into vineyards nestling against the Dassenberg Mountains in the once called Olifantshoek area.

A valley filled with mystery, romance and rich memories of long ago. Images of a feeble, somewhat tottering bridge are soon forgotten as one crosses the Rickety Bridge, to this remarkable wine estate.

And the wines certainly help you with that. Come join us on Friday 27th October 2017 for another legendary chefs table.
