The Franschhoek Mountain pass boasts Jan Joubert’s Gat bridge. Built in 1825, this is South Africa’s oldest stone bridge that is still in use and makes the most magnificent picnic spot immersed in the full splendour of our magnificent valley. As South Africa’s unique variety, our Pinotage is a worthy tribute to this historic landmark.
