Franschhoek Wine Valley

Franschhoek Summer Wines

Get ready for a high summer celebration at this year’s Franschhoek Summer Wines, Saturday, 4 February at Leopard’s Leap Family Vineyards. Come and taste the Franschhoek Vignerons’ choice for summer. White, rosé, Méthode Cap Classique and light reds – all will be revealed on the day!

The wines have been handpicked by the winemakers to complement the hot summer days. Pair your favourites with delicious food from the rotisserie kitchen, as you relax on the veranda or the sprawling lawn with panoramic views of the valley. Live entertainment completes what promises to be a perfect day out in the winelands.

Keeping things cool, dress elegantly in white.

Tickets are available from www.webtickets.co.za at R180 per person.  This includes a wine glass and a tasting of all the wines on show between 12pm and 5pm. For more info contact the Franschhoek Wine Valley offices on 021 876 2861 or email info@franschhoek.org.za.
