I take Tours du Cap clients to Solms-Delta for wine tastings, a museum visit and lunch, regularly. All my clients have loved it every time, with no exception.
This is an unusual estate in the Cape winelands, in that the staff are shareholders - not only is this a fantastic initiative that allows them to reclaim ownership of land that was taken from their ancestors, but it ensures that they take pride in their work and give excellent friendly, hands-on service.
There are various options for lunch - a picnic, an a la carte menu, or the food and wine pairing. All food is exquisitely prepared by the passionate chef Shaun, and uses local ingredients including fynbos, the unique Cape kingdom flora. The results are excellent and allow you to taste the unusual combination of foods that makes up South African cuisine.
There's a large lawn for children to play on while you eat and the setting for the picnic is very lovely.
Next time you want a wine and food experience that combines quality with a down-to-earth setting - this is your best bet in Franschhoek.
