Travel from one estate to the next sampling the wines on offer, which include new release wines as well as a few other not-to-be missed gems. The two-day festival offers Franschhoek’s winemakers the platform to showcase their selection of new release wines, which range from MCC’s, white wines and rosés to red varietals. It’s the perfect excuse to stock up on the upcoming festive season! Participating farms will be pulling out all the stops as they showcase all that they have to offer. Festival highlights include themed tastings, bespoke meals, live music, old school lawn games and more.

With so much on offer be sure to make a weekend of your Uncorked experience.
