FRANSCHHOEK Uncorked Festival on October 16 and 17 is an excellent reason to explore one of South Africa’s premier wine destinations, while uncovering a fine selection of wine gems from the Franschhoek vignerons. This year, 12 wineries have confirmed their participation, with more to follow.
Participating wineries in and around the valley will use the opportunity to showcase this season’s new release wines, which include MCCs, white wines, rosés and even a few summer inspired red varietals. Live music and great food add extra excitement to a fun day out. Be on the lookout for a few special events guaranteed to pique your interest.
Make the most of your Franschhoek outing and turn this two-day event into a weekend of unforgettable memories. Book into one of the valley’s luxurious accommodation establishments, which range from quaint B&Bs and guest houses to 5-star boutique hotels. This will allow you ample time for a leisurely stroll down the main road, uncovering world-class shops, art galleries and boutiques during your Franschhoek Uncorked weekend.
Pre-book your Uncorked Weekend Pass, which cost R220 per person, at Webtickets. Valid for all three days, it allows you access to all of the participating wine farms as well as a complimentary tasting glass and a minimum of two free wine tastings per farm.
