Bastille day on the 14th of July celebrates the village's French Heritage with a festival of fine French food and Wine.

The natural beauty of the landscape has been enhanced by man. Vineyards and Fruit farms, interspersed with clumps of pine, form a delicately interwoven tapestry of mingling colors and shades. Amongst the patchwork of farms in the valley are some of South Africa's oldest and most famous wine estates. The grand old Cape Dutch farmhouses and Wine stores have watched proudly over the land for centuries, and are still producing some of South Africa's top wines today.
