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-estate experience.
Home to two grand guesthouses, it’s also a favoured destination for those looking to spend the night in countryside comfort, making it the perfect place to enjoy a post-lockdown escape with your plus one.
Enjoy a bottle of Rickety Bridge MCC rosé upon arrival, before settling into your home for the night – the gorgeous five-star Manor House. Built in the 19th century, the carefully renovated Cape Dutch property has all the character of a historic home – classic furniture, high wood-beamed ceilings, a large country kitchen and cosy lounge (complete with a warming fireplace) – all the while providing guests with the feeling of being somewhere special.
But that’s not all. In addition to the beautiful tasting room – where you’ll be treated to two wine tasting offerings (including an interactive wine-blending experience) – the winery is also home to a wonderful restaurant where you can enjoy bistro-style meals with a modern twist – and more delicious wine, of course.
Overlooking striking views of the rolling vineyards and mountains beyond, Paulina’s Restaurant offers an extensive lunch menu including calamari salad, gnocchi, salmon roulade, beef carpaccio, butter chicken, pork belly and deconstructed mushroom lasagne, with desserts of baked cheesecake, brownie and panna cotta, to name a few.
Wine, five-star lodgings and sweeping vineyard views? Sounds like our kind of post-lockdown getaway!
