Franschhoek�s original cemetery is the final resting place of the original Huguenot families until the turn of the 20th century. The legacy of these ancestors endures on the engraved tombstones. The Cabernet Sauvignon symbolises longevity and evolution with stealth and structure to preserve Franschhoek�s secrets and stories.

Deep crimson colour with intense blackcurrants and violets on the nose, providing a suitable introduction to concentrated currants and mulberry fruit flavours, elaborated by attractive savoury oak spice to a smooth and lingering juicy fruit finish.

The Franschhoek Cellar is situated at the gateway to Franschhoek � a romantic village known for its French Huguenot heritage - in one of the most scenic wine valleys in the world.

The wine estate was built in 1920 by the legendary John Winshaw, founder of Stellenbosch Farmers� Winery, but became the property of the Castle Wine and Brandy Company in 1930 when Winshaw�s winemaking business faltered in the great depression.

In 1945, a group of local farmers of the Franschhoek Co-op Wine Cellar started selling their wines under the brands of Franschhoek Cellar, Franschhoek Vineyards, and La Cotte. When construction of the winery completed in 1947, the co-operative cellar eventually bought the derelict Castle Wine and Brandy Company building as a storage facility, transforming it into a tasting venue and eatery in 1985.

In 1995, the co-op became Franschhoek Cellars, an independent company with 32 shareholders, and was purchased by DGB in 2008.
