Delight in aromatic herb tour
ADD AN aromatic tour through seas of green herbs to your food and wine expeditions to Franschhoek, guided by Allee Bleue’s resident herb expert.
This enterprising farm off the R45 near the town now offers visitors trips through hectares of hydroponic tunnels from which a ton of herbs is harvested weekly in season.
Basil, coriander, rocket, thyme and rosemary are most in demand, but they also grow dill, fennel, sage, tatsoi, parsley, spring onions, mint, oregano, watercress and tarragon.
The tours, which take place on Fridays, are followed by a cocktail and a three-course herb-inspired lunch, with wine. Tickets cost R185 and booking is essential. Call 021 874 1021 for more information.
