La Cotte Inn Wine and Cheese

(Contributed by )

La Cotte Inn is Franschhoek’s favourite wine and cheese shop, with perhaps the finest selection of South African and imported wines in the country. Apart from stocking a wide range of wines from outside the Franschhoek WIne Valley, they represent 35 Franschhoek wineries. This means that their prices are the same as what you’d pay on the wine estates.

My Experience:

The underground cellar

La Cotte Inn may at first seem like just another Liquor Store, but once inside you’ll see why I added this as an activity. They boast with an underground cellar with more than 450 different wines ranging from R20+ to more than R3000 (Louis Roedere Crystal Brut). They also have more than a 100 different cheeses.

I visited La Cotte Inn with my parents to buy some wine for our Christmas lunch. See Leopard’s Leap for the full story.
