Franschhoek reaches top 10 worldwide

10 Best Wine Travel Destinations 2016

Posted on Apr 18, 2016 by

Franschhoek, or “French corner,” gets its name from the French Huguenots who settled there in the 17th century. Fleeing religious persecution, the Huguenots brought their winemaking
knowledge to the region, and their heritage is commemorated by the many wineries bearing French names.

Today, visitors flock to the busy, tourist-oriented town. Located just 30 minutes from Stellenbosch, it’s widely regarded as a gastronomic capital. Impressive mountains flank the town.
It’s also dotted with both modern and traditional Cape Dutch-style wineries, with vineyards that stretch up the slopes and run down to the river. —Angela
