WINETASTING A day full of culinary highlights and alcoholic beverages means a trip to Franschhoek. Besides the food and wine you are also treated with some great scenery. Franschhoek, Stellenbosch, Paarl, Cederberg, Hermanus and Durbanville are full of winefarms and most of them are really good. A day trip to Fransschoek will not only show you good wines and food but also a really nice drive. Start by taking the N1 in the direction of Paarl. Take exit 59 and drive down the R301 to Franschhoek.
