Franschhoek : Michelin's recommendations
Franschhoek (French area) was settled by a group of Huguenots who came to tame the valley in the late 17C. Today the names of the farms and wine-growing estates dotting the area around the town, like the events held here each year, evoke the founders’ origins. And if that weren’t enough, Franschhoek has also designated itself gastronomic capital of the country.
