Rick­ety Bridge spokesper­son

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - WEEKEND BREAKAWAYS -

R I CKETY B R I DGE, a n e n c h a n t i n g bou­tique wine es­tate set in the mag- nificent Fran­schhoek val­ley, of­fers a new de­light with ev­ery visit.

Di s t i nguis hed by hand-pi c k e d grapes and i nter­na­tional ac­claim, award-winning wines have be­come the hall­mark of Rick­ety Bridge. Taste th­ese cel­e­brated wines in the in­ti­macy of the his­tor­i­cal tast­ing room or the sun-drenched ter­race over­look­ing the ma­jes­tic Wem­mer­shoek moun­tains.

En­joy pic­nic bas­kets and light al fresco meals at the Restau­rant in the Vines set in the heart of the vine­yard, where ev­ery ta­ble has a win­dow seat. Though lunch may be over as the sun sets and the sur­round­ing moun­tains change hue, it doesn’t mean it’s time to leave.

By pop­u­lar re­quest, Rick­ety Bridge once again of­fers an “Spring Spec­tac­u­lar”, which in­cludes an overnight stay in one of the three stylishly ren­o­vated 19th-cen­tury bed­rooms in the fourstar Manor House or the neigh­bour­ing Basse Provence Coun­try House.

In­dulge in a head, neck and face mas­sage. Pam­per your­self with ev­ery lux­ury you would ex­pect of a four-star ho­tel and en­joy the comfortable plea­sures of a coun­try home with care­fully re­stored clas­sic Cape Dutch fur­ni­ture, dra­matic yel­low wood-beamed ceili ngs and pine f l oors pol­ished with l a y e r s o f h i s t o r y. Com­ple t e y o u r bliss­ful overnight stay with a hearty break­fast in this idyl­lic set­ting.
