Franschhoek Wine Valley

The 2014 Winter Sculpture Fair in pictures

This past weekend the second annual Winter Sculpture Fair, presented by MasterCard, with Franschhoek’s chefs and winemakers, was held at the NIROX Sculpture Park at the Cradle of Humankind. The event celebrated contemporary art and sculpture and the best food and wine from the Franschhoek Wine Valley.

If you missed it, have a look at some of the great pictures taken by our festival attendees on Instagram, using the hashtag #wintersculpturefair

We look forward to another fantastic event next year, but until then have a look at our exciting line-up for Cook Franschhoek which takes place in Franschhoek from 13 to 15 June 2014 as well as Franschhoek Winter Wines (21 June 2014). See you there!
