We had a fun time on a Sunday afternoon doing the wine and cheese pairing/tasting. Pretty setting and the hostess was a quite entertaining and interesting young woman. Wines were tasty too!

The Allee Bleue in Franschhoek combines many cool conecpts that can all be experienced at their vineyard. From wine tasting, to wine blending to a wonderful picnic at their own garden did we spent almost half a day there - a day we absolutely enjoyed. While the wine was good was the food surely spectacular, spiced with locally grown herbs.... More

We stayed with our friends for three days in this beautiful area to visit some of the best wineries. The absolute highlight was the wine tasting at Allee Bleue . The bluegum - lined long alley gave the name and after a short drive we reached the historic Manor House, dating from 1690 , in the middle of the vineyards... More

Lots of potential and a pleasant setting with great promise, we tried the restraunt twice and the food was average, however, they do have some very nice white wines. It is nice to drive through the avanue of trees and the vines, so much promise !

We visited while on the wine team. Possibly one of the best picnics available in the area, freshly baked bread, good cheese and cold meat selection. Some good hot food too in the form of wraps and pies. And you sit at a real table to enjoy it if you wish!

Popped in for a wine tasting on a Sunday afternoon. Had a charming host who knew their wines very well. Place was quiet. Only ours and another table occupied. Nice place to stop by if in the mood for a quick tasting.

The staff at le Cabriere recommended this. Beautiful views, generous wine tasting and oh the picnic lunch! Great service, lovely staff and far too much food! Much better than the other overcrowded options!
