Grande Provence rolls out the barrel on Harvest Day

Celebrate the 2017 grape harvest with Grande Provence Heritage Wines Estate in Franschhoek on Saturday, 25 February, when barrels of fun in the heartland of South African wine country will be the order of the day.

The annual Grande Provence Harvest Festival kicks off at 08h00 with coffee and freshly baked, farm-style muffins, before embarking on a tractor ride, followed by grape picking, stomping, wine and grape tasting and a cellar tour. Live music and a lavish Harvest Table of signature dishes expertly prepared by Grande Provence Executive Chef Darren Badenhorst, showcasing the finest local produce, will round off the day of festivities.

Situated in the picturesque Franschhoek valley and part of the internationally acclaimed Huka Retreats, Grande Provence embraces true South African wine heritage, excellent food at The Restaurant, and luxury accommodation. So why not stay over and make a weekend out of it?
