Franschhoek is the small sub-region in the larger area of the Paarl District. Franschhoek, and Paarl, have very long and hot summers that make it ideal for growing 'hot-climate' grapes like Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah - all of which produce very fruit-forward and ripe wines. That being said it is often the home to many aromatic white grape varietals as well as it is home to many shallow valleys and some higher altitudes, which allow for the vineyards to be placed in cooler spots perfect to grow white grapes.
