The Franschhoek Cellar
Franschhoek Cellar, a beautiful asset to the Franschhoek Valley, combines the charms of leisurely country life with the elegance of a world-class destination.
Enjoy our acclaimed wines, paired with delicious Belgian chocolate or handcrafted cheese, or dine alfresco in our fabulous garden whilst taking in the spectacular views and vistas of the Franschhoek.
Franschhoek Cellar is home to an exquisite range of award-winning Cap Classique, white and red wines.
Inspired by over 350 years of winemaking tradition and heritage, our winemaker takes inspiration from exceptional vineyards and historical sites and monuments in the Franschhoek Valley to produce this vibrant and intriguing range of wines that evoke a sense of history.
Originally called Oliphants Hoek, the town of Franschhoek was named after the herds of elephant that roamed the surrounding valley and mountains.
To this day, the Franschhoek Valley holds the elephant dear as a symbol of the power and finesse that mark the wines born of its fertile earth. The Last Elephant, an exclusive red blend by Franschhoek Cellar, is a tribute to the last elephant seen leaving the valley late in the late 19th Century.
