Autumn in Franschhoek is undoubtedly the best season of the year, albeit a short one.  The cooler days bring us relief from the summer heat, invigorates and revives us and tells us to get outdoors before the cold winter days start.  The vine leaves are starting to change from dark green to rich reds, rusts and yellows.  They will soon drop to carpet the ground beneath the bare stalls so get your camera out and enjoy the riot of colour while you can.
