Franschhoek can almost be too quaint, too pretty as a wine region. The wineries are dotted along the main road – the only road – along the valley like pearls on a string. They are surrounded by beautiful real estate developments where the villas have stunning views over the mountains. The village of Franschhoek itself is a paradise for weekending Cape Towners with its charming restaurants, bars, and gift shops. But take one of the roads leading off the valley floor and you quickly reach more wild, almost deserted landscapes. In one of the valleys you find Glenwood vineyards with the winemaker DP Burger.
We have a whole series of video clips with DP talking about his winery and his wines on BKWine Magazine: DP Burger at Glenwood Vineyards in Franschhoek, South Africa, interview and videos.
Do join us on a trip to South Africa and we will show you some of the best wines and wineries in the country, on the wine tour to South Africa.
