Rickety Bridge has a winemaking history dating back to the 17th century. It was part of the original La Provence farm granted to the first French Huguenots who settled in Franschhoek. Situated just 5 minutes from the centre of Franschhoek, the winery lies on the slopes of the Franschhoek Mountains and offers great views on the majestic Wemmershoek Mountain range. Whether with your family or with friends, you will enjoy great wines in a relaxed atmosphere, either at the inside wine tasting lounge or the new "Tasting in the Vines" outside lounge .
