Franschhoek’s wine dogs play a special part in everyday life. Not only can they tell our winemakers when to start harvesting by simply smelling the grapes, they also play an integral part in welcoming visitors to their farms, they are also often childminders, cork-chasers, and above all our winemakers’ best friends and constant companions. During 2015 Franschhoek Wine Valley dedicated a monthly feature on our blog to highlight the valuable role that these wine dogs play in our wineries’ lives. We had such a great response to this initiative that we decided to create a special printable DIY calendar featuring all 12 of our wine dogs.
