More about Red Line - Wine Tram

The Franschhoek wine tram is a unique way of exploring this picturesque village’s popular wine estates. The red line wine tour leaves at 10:30am and 11:30am on the tram bus. Hop on or off at your leisure as you visit La Motte, Eikehof, Leopards Leap, Dieu Donne, Chamonix, Rickety Bridge and Grande Provence.

Admire the impressive scenery as you meander through the vineyards on the open-air tram wine tour. You can stay at each wine estate as long as you like, moving on when you want to. You’ll also learn more through an informative narration on the tram and enjoy wine tours and tastings at the estates.

Opinions On Red Line - Wine Tram

What the locals say about Red Line - Wine Tram.

Margaret White

Our First stop was Mont Rochelle which did not impress us very much.Not very welcoming or professional to the wine Tasting experience.The star of the show was Leopards Leap. We were introduced to our Wine Tasting by a very Pleasant Lady who explained everything to us.We decided to have Lunch which was excellent . Both the choice of Food and quality were first class. We had a wonderful experience and went home with two bottles of wine each .Mode of transport was different and drivers very friendly.Highly recommended. Hope to repeat experience in early 2015.

Keith lewis

The wine tram is an excellent addition to the town facilities. Certainly keeps all us "merry souls" off the roads. Well organised, on time, reliable. Would recommend very highly.


Only 75 km from Cape Town, picturesque Franschhoek is an idyllic setting for wining and dining.
