Rickety Bridge Estate Pty Ltd


Rickety Bridge Wine Estate is a popular destination in the Cape Winelands with a long wine-making history. Although reminiscent of the past, and nostalgic and timeless, this estate is all things new, all things delectable and all things sublime. The estate is nestled against the slopes of the Franschhoek Mountains. The 50 hectare wine estate has 27 hectares of vines, accommodation at Basse Provence Guest House and the Rickety Bridge Manor House, and a beautiful tasting room where guests can sample the superb Rickety Bridge Winery wines. Their restaurant, Paulina's, occupies a stunning location amongst the vineyards - perfect for pensively sipping on our wine while enjoying a meal off the bistro-style menu.

Rickety Bridge Manor House overlooks the vineyards and magnificent mountains. This historic Cape Dutch manor house has been providing visitors with a welcoming rest stop for almost two centuries. Three luxuriously appointed rooms ensure a relaxing and peaceful atmosphere.

Every detail of the Rickety Bridge Manor House has been carefully considered, from the classic Cape Dutch furniture to the fire-warmed lounge and country kitchen. The dramatic yellow-wood beamed ceilings and polished pine floors narrate stories of the past.

The establishment offers three double rooms, each with an en-suite bathroom. The rooms are adorned in a luxurious and tasteful manner, providing guests with all the amenities one would expect from a five-star hotel. The rooms are equipped with cable/satellite TV, minibars, air conditioning, underfloor heating, and heated towel rails.

To ensure guests' comfort, the rooms are supplied with bathrobes, premium bedding, hairdryers, and extra linen and towels. The property is entirely smoke-free, with a separate tub and shower for added convenience. Guests are welcome to use the verandah, providing a picturesque view of the Wemmershoek Mountains.

Breakfast can be savoured in our charming breakfast room or by the swimming pool, overlooking Franschhoek’s gorgeous mountains. Guests can also enjoy award-winning and internationally renowned wines while relaxing on comfortable leather couches by the fireplace. Additionally, our team of expert chefs can treat guests to a gourmet lunch.


Take a seat on the terrace with magnificent vineyard and mountain views or cosy up in front of the fireplace in the colder months, while sipping on a glass of fine wine. The full range of award-winning Rickety Bridge wines is available to complement your lunch. Taste your way through the ranges at the Wine Tasting Centre or follow the suggested wine pairings on the menu. A carefully selected menu has been created to delight the little ones, as well.
