Today I began a report on a visit to Franschhoek. It’s a wine region that is often misunderstood: the narrative is, that as the leading gastronomic destination in the Cape, it’s good for restaurants but bad for wine. This is unfair. Here’s a film I shot of the valley and some of its leading vignerons, who think there is something distinctive and special about this place. Over the next few days, I’ll be adding in-depth reviews of all the wines I tried on this trip.
