Rickety Bridge Country House
With the arrival of summer, the new Rickety Bridge Tasting Room in the Vines is a 'must visit' destination. The tasting room, housed on an elevated platform with a three-sided full-height glazed facade, offers dramatic views of the vineyards with the majestic Franschhoek Mountains towering in the background. The rustic charm of the old Rickety Bridge tasting room has been retained, but a monochromatic contemporary design and a number of stylish new elements infuse the setting with a striking modern elegance. An impressive feature is the tasting counter, once a feeding trough on the Argentinian Pampas, and now, with the addition of a glass- and steel-framed countertop, it creates a discreetly sophisticated tasting environment. To further enhance the vinous experience, the tasting room virtually spills over, through massive glass walls, into the cellar, affording guests a clear view of a working winery. On hot days insulated roofing and ceiling fans will keep the guests cool when sipping on Rickety Bridge's Brut Rose' or refreshing white wines, or, on cooler days, guests can recline on leather couches around the wood-burning fireplace and soak up the warmth while enjoying Rickety Bridge's fine red wines. The 'big hit' this summer will no doubt be Rickety Bridge's floating terraces in the vineyards, where wine-lovers can taste Rickety Bridge wines, entirely surrounded by vines. A laid-back game of boules may beckon, just a few steps away, while children amuse themselves on the jungle gym and adjacent lawn.
