La Cotte Inn Wine and Cheese

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.
