Make this Christmas truly special with the gift of Rickety Bridge wines. Delight your loved ones with a bottle of our limited-edition Reserve wine, or surprise them with a curated selection of our finest vintages. It's a gift that will be cherished and savoured long after the festivities have ended.
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. With a history going back to 1797, the estate and its legacy have been passed on to its current owner Duncan Spence who has been ownership of the estate since 2000.
This historic estate was originally part of the great La Provence farm given to French Huguenot farmers in 1694. Over the years the property was divided and the portion which is now Rickety Bridge was granted to Paulina De Villiers, one of the first female landowners in South Africa, in 1797.
Taste your way through the Rickety Bridge ranges. The Wine Tasting Centre is adjacent to the wine cellar, offering a glimpse into the inner workings of a working winery. It is housed on an elevated platform with a three-sided full-height glazed façade, offering views of the vineyards and majestic Franschhoek mountains.
