Franschhoek Vineyards Ltd was founded in 1945 by a group of local farmers to vinify their grapes on a co-operative basis. We have long since shed this old co-op image and we are now operating as a private winery.Besides initiating an uncompromised drive to produce great quality wines, Franschhoek Cellar now offers an outstanding value range of single variety wines, capturing the vibrant character and charm of our magnificent valley of wine.
Today, our cellar is a proud and active pillar in the Franschhoek community. The production of the cellar is in the order of 8000 tons or 560 000 cases per annum.With continued investment, we are very well placed to grow and continue to extend and elevate our proud tradition of wine making started sixty five years ago.
