Rickety Bridge Wedding Venue – The rickety bridge straddling the Franschhoek River takes you into vineyards nestling against the Dassenberg Mountains in the once called Olifantshoek area. A valley filled with mystery, romance and rich memories of long ago.
Images of a feeble, somewhat tottering bridge are soon forgotten as one crosses the rickety bridge, to this remarkable wine estate. This land dates back to 1694 when farms, situated in the valley at the foot of what is now known as the Franschhoek Mountain were given to Huguenot farmers – Rickety Bridge was once part of the original La Provence farm.
