Franschhoek Wine Valley

A Sparkling Affair at Grande Provence

Join Grande Provence for A Sparkling Affair and embrace the shimmering Champagne lifestyle on the eve of the Franschhoek Cap Classique & Champagne Festival on Friday, 2 December.

After making their debut at the Franschhoek Festival with their maiden Méthode Cap Classique last year, Grande Provence Heritage Wine Estate has upped the ante this year by teaming up with top French Champagne houses for a once in a lifetime evening of utter indulgence.

Executive Chef Darren Badenhorst has created a menu of elaborate dishes with exceptional ingredients to complement the unique character of each Champagne as well as the estate’s own elegant Cap Classique.

The Champagnes of the evening are Drappier Brut Rosé, Le Mesnil Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru, Jacquesson Cuvée 738 Extra Brut, and the inimitable Dom Perignon 2006 Vintage Brut. A Champagne specialist will be on hand to guide guests through the flight of these top tier bubblies. Since most of these Champagnes are hard to come by for most South African bubbly lovers, this special evening promises to be an unforgettable experience.

Booking is essential at R2 250 per person, which includes the lavish dinner and Champagne. The Sparkling Affair in The Restaurant at Grande Provence starts at 18h30 on Friday, 2 December.

With the Magic of Bubbles Cap Classique and Champagne Festival taking place in Franschhoek on 3 – 4 December, why not make a weekend of it and stay over at the luxurious Owner’s Cottage or La Provençale Villa in the Vineyard at Grande Provence.
