What you'll do
We meet at the Franschhoek Adventure Centre in the main road of the village where will be fitted for our mountain bikes. We them take a leisurely ride through the back roads of the town looking at some of the lovely homes before we enter the vineyards. We ride through two vineyards with spectacular mountain views to reach our first wine farm. We will have our tasting overlooking the vines before heading off to our second and third wine farms. You will have nine tastings in total and enjoy a delicious olive and olive oil tasting on the house. After a few hours spent enjoying the views, the leisurely lifestyle and superb wines, we make our way back to the Adventure Centre in the village.
Having lived in this beautiful village for the past decade, and having intimate knowledge of the various wine farms and country roads, I have put together a fun, relaxing mountain bike tour to some of the best vineyards in the region. I have learned much about South African wines over the years and love to impart this knowledge to my guests, allowing them to appreciate the wines they are sampling more thoroughly. As a South African citizen, I also have an intimate knowledge of the history of my country and the wine valley in particular as well as the current affairs of the country.
