Join us as we welcome Andy Woolgar, the US Ambassador for Rickety Bridge Winery here at BottleMixx for a Thursday evening wine tasting.
Established in 1797, the winery is located in the beautiful Franschhoek appellation, South Africa and is known for producing some of the finest Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Shiraz, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc and Semillon varietals.
The Franschhoek wine estate, Rickety Bridge, has a winemaking history dating back to the 17th century. It was once part of the original La Provence farm granted to the first French Huguenots who settled in Oliphantshoek (Elephants Corner) and renamed the area, Franschhoek, or ‘French Corner’. Over the years La Provence was subdivided and in 1797 the land which is now known as Rickety Bridge wine estate was granted to the widow, Paulina De Villiers, and she planted the first vines there.
See you here!
