Franschhoek Cellar has cemented its reputation as Winelands travellers’ undisputed favourite destination by clinching another sought-after Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor, the world’s largest and most influential travel website. This is the fourth consecutive year the winery has achieved this feat.

To qualify for the instantly recognizable Certificate of Excellence badge, a hospitality business must regularly earn great reviews from TripAdvisor users and maintain an overall 4-out-of-5 rating over 12 months. It is a designation only bestowed on about 10% of the more than 8 million businesses listed on the website and so attests to its superlative standards that Franschhoek Cellar has been able to maintain this consistently high level of customer satisfaction over multiple years.

Instrumental in Franschhoek Cellar’s success has been its family-friendly restaurant, which has become known for its vibrant, fresh dishes bursting with flavour. Chef Jerry Kennedy and his team draw inspiration from seasonality and the finest locally sourced ingredients including the winery garden’s own produce. Actively incorporating customer feedback through platforms like TripAdvisor has also helped them to refine the menu to dishes that diners return for time and again.

When it comes to the cellar door, Franschhoek Cellar has a comprehensive offering. It is home to an extensive range of eponymous wines, as well as sister brands Bellingham and Brampton. Expert wine hosts present a variety of tastings and favourite pairings with some of the finest local cheeses and chocolates.

Other drawcards at Franschhoek Cellar include the fantastic supervised children’s play park, and an exciting events schedule which includes hosting some of South Africa’s leading music acts. Franschhoek Cellar also has a range of venues for every occasion, from birthday parties and weddings to corporate events.

Franschhoek Cellar’s all-round hospitality excellence has not only consistently wowed TripAdvisor users but also ensured the winery a large following of loyal visitors. There is truly an experience for everyone and this, combined with unsurpassed service and quality, have made it one of the Winelands’ best-loved destinations.
