Less than an hour’s drive from Cape Town, a valley of gems awaits in the Franschhoek wine region. One such destination is the Franschhoek Motor Museum on L’Ormarins Estate, with its impressive vintage-car collection. And, while you’re out there, you might want to hop on the trams that run between L’Ormarins and its neighbouring farm, Antonij Rupert Wyne for a wine-tasting tour and a delicious lunch or high tea.
How it works
The two custom-built trams travel in tandem between the venues, with each return journey lasting around 30 minutes. The rides are complementary and visitors are permitted to hop on and off as many times as they like throughout the day.
So, all you need to decide is whether you want to start your day with a visit to the motor museum and end it with a leisurely lunch, with a wine-tasting in between – or vice versa.
Good to know
- Visits to the estate are by appointment only.
- The tram service is only available to guests who visit the museum, restaurant or wine-tasting at Antonij Rupert Wyne.
- The two tasting rooms at Anthonij Rupert offer a variety of three tasting experiences, which you can pre-book.
- Opt for the Anthoij Rupert Estate Package which includes lunch, wine, and a tram ride for only R650 per person.
