The tasting facility was built around an integral piece of history – a century year old tractor, which was transferred from the original estate to its new home in Franschhoek. Vintage wine-making equipment owned by the Back family is on display in the new venue, adding a museum-like element for visitors to enjoy. Placing great importance on sustainability, items from the farm such as barrels and wood chips have been repurposed to create lighting, furniture and design elements, fashioning a truly authentic look and feel to the new space.
To complement your wine tasting experience, a selection of pairings, both sweet and savoury, as well as grazing-boards in the summer months will be on offer. Expect delightful dishes infused with local flavours such as fynbos salt-infused crackers, waterblommetjie wontons, a seasonal salad jar, smoked snoek samosas, trout spring rolls and an exciting wine jelly pairing, to name a few.
The Backsberg family cannot wait to welcome you to taste our latest collection of wines, browse historical memorabilia
and soak up the magic of the natural surroundings that envelop their new home.
