Franschhoek’s Rickety Bridge increasingly well travelled
Paulina’s is a casual restaurant, children are welcome… nothing fancy and the etiquette is country style… They won’t win an award for great steaks, but otherwise the food is all very enjoyable, especially the fish and chicken dishes. And if you’re lucky you may be served by a waiter who knows ‘everything’ about the farm, its history, its people and the wines – a chatty guy who does a good job of contributing to a fun afternoon.
For quite a while now Rickety Bridge has had a reputation for good Shiraz, although more recently the Cabernet Sauvignon has been the subject of as many rave reviews if not more so, and the Foundation Stone must count as one of the best-value red blends made in the valley.
The flagships go by the name of Paulina’s Reserve, with the ‘icon’ wine referred to as simply ‘The Bridge’.
Would I go back for more? For sure…
