Take A Wine Tour On A Tram

Babylonstoren wines are produced in a state-of-the-art winery that showcases the soils and climate, with its popular pinot noir and chardonnay offering lush tasting opportunities. One of the most exciting offerings is its location along the Franschhoek Wine Tram route, where guests can hop off for a tasting or daily cellar tour. They can also enjoy their new wine tunnel, journeying through centuries of making and storing wine.

“At Babylonstoren, we constantly try to delight and entice our visitors by thinking differently and innovating to give guests an immersive experience. Through winning this award, we feel that our passion for our farm and our visitors are being recognised.” – Charl Coetzee, Cellar Master
