Popular tourism website, Tourism Update, recently asked their readers to list products suited to the United States markets, and the result was an astounding 40 different ideas received. These ideas were submitted to a judging panel in the US, who narrowed them down to the top seven products, La Petite Ferme in Franschhoek being one of them.
La Petite Ferme is a four-star accommodation, restaurant and wine-farm situated high up on the Franschhoek Mountains. Known for its world-famous country cuisine, the family-owned and operated restaurant offers guests a culinary experience. Home to staff who have been with the restaurant for over 30 years, La Petite Ferme offers warm and personalised service. Owner Mark Dendy Young has been crafting the farm’s award-winning wines, such as the flagship Merlot, for 20 years, and his one-on-one cellar tour makes La Petite Ferme one of the more intimate wineries in the valley.
This latest recognition follows hot on the heels of Franschhoek being appointed a member of The Délice Network of Good Food Cities of the World. Délice is an international network of likeminded cities engaged in promoting the benefits of culinary excellence and good food.
