Franschhoek Wine Valley

Franschhoek to showcase at this year’s Winter Sculpture Fair 9 & 10 May

Sip, sample and savour superb wines and culinary delights from renowned Franschhoek Wine Valley producers as you view the larger-than-life sculptures on show at this year’s Winter Sculpture Fair. Hosted by Artlogic, the acclaimed NIROX Sculpture Park will be transformed into a contemporary wonderland over the weekend of 9 and 10 May, with these exquisite sculptures dotted across the landscape, creating the perfect backdrop for a social meeting place. 
The success of the past two year’s Winter Sculpture Fair has proven to be the perfect day trip, where discerning visitors can enjoy good food, superb wine and beautiful art, in a spectacular setting with friends and family. This year the Franschhoek Wine Valley will be represented by well known wine farms such as Stony Brook, Vrede en Lust, La Bri, Rickety Bridge and Haute Cabrière. Regarded as SA’s Culinary Capital treat your taste buds to gastronomic delights prepared by Bread & Wine, Maison, Foliage and Fromage de France, to name but a few.

The NIROX Sculpture Park, the first of its kind in Gauteng, offers a relaxing atmosphere in which to enjoy an art form not ordinarily open to the general public. Situated about an hour’s drive from Johannesburg, the 15 hectare, lush expanse of land that was once a commercial trout farm now offers an impressive display of world-class sculpture amid a sea of greenery, complete with walkways and water features. 
Entrance to the fair costs R150 per person and can be purchased directly via Webtickets. Limited tickets will be made available on the day, so it is best to book beforehand to avoid disappointment.
