Franschhoek Wine Valley

Winemaker’s Dinner at Holden Manz

To celebrate the forthcoming International Cabernet Franc Day we will be hosting a multi-winemaker dinner featuring cabernet franc and winemakers from Raats Family Wines, Van Loggerenberg Wines, Antonij Rupert and of course Holden Manz.  This will be the launch of our new vintage Cabernet Franc Reserve 2017, recently awarded 91+ by Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate.  Chef Christo has constructed an innovative tasting menu.  A glass of our Rothko Rosé on arrival and a first course paired with the new Holden Manz Proprietors’ White Blend 2018 together with 4 of South Africa’s leading cabernet francs will make this a night to remember as we enjoy a fun group of winemakers and their exceptional wines.  R595 per person.  Reservations essential  or telephone 021 876 2738
