Rickety Bridge Wine Estate


Rickety Bridge Wine Estate is a picturesque property nestled into the slopes of the Franschhoek Mountains with views of the Wemmershoek mountain range. There is a nostalgic feel to the estate, although that is not to say it is dated by any means, rather the rooms have a timeless and classic look and offer you all the comforts of home and more. With the accommodation on the actual wine estate, you couldn’t be in a better location to go wine tasting, enjoy a cellar tour, or just simply enjoy the beauty of the grounds.  This combined with the great service and food makes Rickety Bridge a truly idyllic estate to stay on.
