Revitalised and reimagined: Backsberg re-launches in Franschhoek

Now situated in Franschhoek, wine lovers can enjoy a refreshed portfolio of Backsberg wines from their new tasting facility, which was introduced at a glamorous launch party on the evening of Thursday 30 June.

The brand new 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.
