Perched on the slopes of the Franschhoek Mountains with sweeping views of the valley, Rickety Bridge Winery is a popular destination for day-trippers seeking a true Franschhoek wine-farm experience. And, home to two four-star guesthouses, it’s also a favoured destination for those looking to spend the night in ultimate countryside comfort.
Built in the 19th century, the stylishly renovated Cape Dutch Manor House has all the character of an historic home – from classic furniture and high wood-beamed ceilings to a large country kitchen and cosy lounge (complete with a warming fireplace). Yet it still provides guests the feeling of being somewhere special. In addition to the beautiful tasting room – where visitors can sample a selection of the estate wines – the Rickety Bridge Manor House is home to three en-suite rooms that offer the ultimate comfort throughout your stay.
But hold your horses, because that’s not all. Together with four-star lodgings and a pristine setting, the winery is also home to a wonderful restaurant that serves wholesome food with a modern twist – and delicious wine, of course. Overlooking striking views of the rolling vineyards and mountains beyond, Paulina’s Restaurant offers an extensive menu including chicken ravioli, beetroot carpaccio, salmon fishcakes, Cape Malay prawn curry, butter chicken, pork belly, and deconstructed mushroom lasagne, with desserts of baked cheesecake, malva pudding, and a churros basket. There’s even a kiddies’ menu!
If this sounds like all your countryside getaway dreams come true, then you might want to enter our competition to stand a chance of savouring a wonderful meal before falling asleep to the sounds of the valley.
