Wine Tasting at La Residence

Wine is about so much more than the contents of the bottle. Wine is the story of the land, its people and the winemaker’s journey. Wine is about travel, romance, and passion and it should be experienced and savoured your own way.

Experiences

A stroll through the vineyards

On 2 January, 2011, our maiden vintage was bottled, and today, we have bottled three of our own wines and named them affectionately after members of the Biden family. We would love you to try the Nicole Charlotte Cabernet Sauvignon, the Alexandra Frances Shiraz, and the Rosemary Jane Rosé.

Our expert sommelier, Wayve Kolevsohn, is one of the first African women with her certification, pioneering a fresh approach to our wine programmes. Wayve will tailor wine tastings to palate and is committed to building a mature collection of South African wines for our guests’ pleasure at La Residence.

Eight ways of wine tasting at La Residence

There are many wine estates in and around Franschhoek with fabulous tasting rooms and restaurants. We have put together a few ideas to make the most of this landscape and the wine it produces. Talk to our concierge about our specially curated wine-tasting excursions and find yourself choosing between a wine tour by helicopter, by road, on horseback, by bike, or on foot.

There is also an innovative and experiential Wine Tram which follows different routes between the wine farms and you can choose to jump on and off at the farms of your choice. See our Top Wine Tasting Tips for Franschhoek.
