Solms-Delta is located 15km outside the village of Franschhoek in the heart of the Cape Winelands, the wine estate produces classical wines with a difference… In fact everything about Solms-Delta is different.

What we say: Lucy and I both agreed that this estate is offering something unique. The tours offer an interesting CSR component and the food, whilst not sampled, looks delicious, and with the Cape Malay twist – definitely something our clients will enjoy. The wine and food pairing is sufficient for a light lunch and extremely good value for money. For larger groups, there are 6 tours that we can rotate the group, depending on the interest, and the local musician adds a fun element. We heard him tuning up and he sounds great!

Fyndraai Restaurant has a very unique and local twist on popular Franschhoek restaurants. It offers a modern take on traditional Cape cuisine whilst showcasing the history of the area. For those wishing to picnic in the Cape Winelands, the estate offers appetising picnic baskets from Fyndraai restaurant with delicious vegetarian options. Contents typically include basil pesto marinated farm vegetables with chive crème fraiche; bacon and onion potato slaai with vinaigrette; smoked Franschhoek trout with caper berries and fresh cream, and chicken tandoori with cucumber and honey mustard yoghurt. Private picnic spots are spread out along the estate’s riverside forest.

The wine farm estate also features a museum that explores the slave heritage of the area, and six special interest guided wine farm tours that exceed the conventional wine tasting experience.

Vineyards, Cellar and Wine Tour

Fun Farm Walk & Wine

Something for the more energetic and fit! Escape from city life and take a 5km walk around the farm. Start off with a welcoming glass of our (low alcohol) Cape Jazz Shiraz – a celebratory stirrup cup! Then enjoy a brisk walk through the vineyards and along the beautiful Dwars River.

A Taste of our Food Heritage

The restaurant’s menu is a fusion of three culinary traditions of the Cape – it does not fuse or ‘re-invent’ these traditions, but rather allows you to experience them just as they would have been prepared in the past. Come and taste all three – authentic Boerekos, Cape Malay and Veldkos dishes.

Rhino Poaching Dream Team Launched

Poaching ‘dream team’ plans to hunt down poachers

A ‘dream team’ has been set up to track and shut down syndicates involved in illegal poaching. The team includes vehicle tracking company, Tracker, with one of its best field operatives, former Soweto Dog Unit member and Tracker law enforcement officer, Stroppie Grobbelaar, at the helm.

Grobbelaar’s back-up team will include intelligence agents as well as the eBlockwatch community network. Existing eBlockwatch members  can join the team by logging on to the eBlockwatch website, or new members can sign up and register at www.eblockwatch.co.za.
In particular, owners of game farms and those involved in conservation are being asked to sign up. Helicopter pilots, farm watch groups and game rangers are also needed, as eBlockwatch believes these people will be most instrumental in providing information that with help Stroppie and his team at Tracker hunt down the poachers.

Every email received with information will be captured and fed into eBlockwatch’s Memex software belonging to the Specialised Services Group. This will then be fed through to Stroppie and the ‘dream team’. Once poachers have been located, eBlockwatch members closest to them will receive an sms, asking them to help mobilise their security companies and networks to assist.

Lets hope this will go a long way to stopping this atrocity!!
