Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri Sat Sun Hol
Open daily

At Grande Provence we try to ensure the whole family has an enjoyable time with lots of great activities. Start on the journey of fine wine appreciation at Grande Provence with red and white grape juice ‘tasting’ especially for children.

Colouring-in activities occupy the children while parents concentrate on enhancing their wine tasting skills. A jungle gym, with supervision occupies the children while parents linger over their lunch. Family picnics near the vines or within the beautiful gardens are a perfect style of relaxed al fresco dining over the summer.

The Franschhoek Wine Tram hop-on hop-off tour is one of the best ways to discover the true essence of the Franschhoek Valley – picturesque vineyards, breath-taking scenery, warm hospitality, world-class cuisine, fine wines and a 300 year history.

Families travelling aboard the hop-on hop-off tour will experience a unique and leisurely way to see the Franschhoek Valley as they journey through rolling vineyards in an open-side tram and open-air tram-bus stopping in at some of South Africa’s oldest and most distinguished wine estates.
