Option One sets off to Lynx Wines and Rickety Bridge before returning to La Petite Ferme for a languid lunch. Your wine-lands meander then continues with a visit to Grande Provence and ends the afternoon on a high at Mont Rochelle.
Option Two includes a stop-over at Dieu Donné, Rickety Bridge, Grande Provence and Month Rochelle before returning to La Petite Ferme for some well-deserved R&R. A minimum of two people is required per booking and an hour is spent at each winery.
Likewise, there are few better places to enjoy a great meal with vistas like these when dining at La Petite Ferme’s slick a la carte restaurant that is famous for its food as much as its splendid, tree-lined panorama. This eatery serves up creative, heart-warming dishes with a global twist, along with La Petite Ferme’s champion wines and the best views in the Franschhoek Valley.
The La Petite Ferme winter packages apply from 1 May to 30 September, so be quick to book. The popularity of the destination means the opportunity won’t be available for long.
