Today, you will set out from Cape Town and into the scenic Cape Winelands. There are over 800 wine estates in the Western Cape, most of which have tasting rooms and many of which have excellent restaurants.
There are several top wine estates and tasting rooms in close proximity to La Residence in Franschhoek including Chamonix, La Motte, Grande Provence, Rupert & Rothschild, Holden Manz and Mullineux & Leeu.
Slightly further afield is the renowned wine route of Stellenbosch which is well worth exploring if time permits. Some of our favourites include Delaire Graff, Tokara, Cavalli, Klein Zalze and Babylonstoren.
After a morning wine-tasting in the beautiful winelands you will be brought to the Silo’s sister property, La Residence, where you will enjoy a gourmet lunch. cuisine emphasises fresh, local ingredients, many of which are grown on the estate.
Because the cuisine is such an integral part of the experience at La Residence, our guests will often sit down with the chefs to discuss their preferences and dietary requirements with menus being tailored accordingly.
