The views from the estate are pretty as a picture. The decor quite different from anything previously seen. The dessert wine is a little bit of heaven... light on the palate, oozing with a fruitiness with a strong litchi taste.

As part of our win tram we stopped in at this estate. The view and place are lovely but we found the service and friendliness of staff in the wine tasting to be less than average, this was disappointing.

During our two day stay in Franschoek we visited also the Grand Provence Estate for a wine tasting afternoon. The Estate is truly stunning, only comparable to the Richard Brandson Estate. A beautiful styled garden with sculptures complete the scenery and invite for a wine tasting together with lunch. An art galary just behind the restaurant complete the exclusive atmosphere.... More

We stayed in the owners cottage which has its own butler who is absolutely fantastic. Nothing was too much of a problem for Wellington and he was a star. We had a function there on sat evening and came back late and it was no problem for him to arrange a couple of glasses of wine at 0100 in the... More

One of the most beautiful estates we went to in Franschoek. There is an amazing array of art and sculptures as well as a fantastic wine tasting and food menu. This estate can also be viewed on the Franschoek Wine Tram.

We enjoyed our visit to Grand Provence. The wines were very nice and we enjoyed sitting on our tractor seats in the tasting room by a warm fire. The grounds include a pretty sculpture garden and a wonderful little gallery with interesting local art. This was one stop on a very full day, but I would love to go back... More

They have a beautiful tasting room, indoors and out. We enjoyed the sculptures and other various pieces of art work as we worked our way through a wine tasting.

The tasting room is quite interesting in its use of metal, wood and odds and ends. The wine was not special and the tasting room staff where not helpful.

This is the most beautiful setting in which to enjoy a lovely, relaxing lunch accompanied by a bottle of Grande Provence wine, (or you can go with the wine journey to accompany the food). We booked lunch one sunny afternoon in April this year, and it was such a pleasure to sit under the shade of the huge Oak trees... More

Our only day in Franschhoek was during hurricane-like weather, so, unfortunately, we did not get to enjoy the property in its entirety but the wine tasting room had a cool, modern vibe to it and the wine was good. There is an art gallery attached, which we enjoyed walking around.
