Rickety Bridge – Picturesque Boutique Winery in Franschhoek

With state-of-the-art cellar technology, wines of the highest quality and a clear recognition value are created in the old wine cellar. Besides the Rickety Bridge Range, the winery vinifies the Paulina’s Reserve Range as homage to the first owner. The Bridge is considered the gem of the portfolio and is a wine hard to match in terms of multifacetedness.

Donnovan Ackermann is the new cellarmaster of Rickety Bridge since December 2018. During the first years of his career he gained valuable experience in France, Australia and California.

Tradition Meets Modernity at Rickety Bridge

The Rickety Bridge winery is located in the immediate vicinity of Franschhoek, a place known for its excellent South African wines and tasty delicacies. Located between the Dassenberg Mountain and the Franschhoek River, the vineyard blends perfectly into an almost picturesque panorama. Rickety Bridge is a winery with a long tradition. The history goes back to the 17th century, when the manor was part of the La Provence farm. The farm was originally managed by Huguenot farmers and it was not until 1990 that the current Rickety Bridge winery was founded.

Excellent Rickety Bridge Premium Wines

This scenery paired with the unique Franschhoek terroir is perfectly suited cellar mastr Donovan Ackermann to create excellent South African wine. The noble wines are aged in the restored wine cellar. The progressive Rickety Bridge winery relies on the most modern standards in wine production and the winemaker combines perfectionism with passion. The results from the wine cellar are impressive – be it the Rickety Bridge Paulina’s Reserve Collection with excellent red and white wines, named after the first owner of the estate Paulina de Viliers or The Bridge, which stands out as a flagship wine. The estate's South African premium wines have received numerous international awards and know how to inspire the connoisseur.

Rickety Bridge is More Than Just a Winery

The Rickety Bridge winery has a lot more to offer. An exclusive accommodation in the Manor House with only a few rooms for guests leaves nothing to be desired. The beautiful landscape of the estate on the Franschhoek River is something you won't forget. This ambience is perfect for weddings that can be held on the estate. In addition, there is a first-class restaurant with South African cuisine, which also contributes to making the Rickety Bridge Winery such a popular destination for excursions.
