BEGIN the festive season on a fashionably high note at the annual Franschhoek Cap Classique & Champagne Festival, The Magic of Bubbles, presented by Sanlam Private Wealth. One of SA’s premier social calendar highlights, this year’s event takes place over the weekend of November 30 and December 1 at the Huguenot Monument.
For those preferring a laid-back stylish experience, Sunday’s offering, The Big Bubbly Brunch, should not be missed. Mingle with friends as you sample the wide range of local MCCs as well as selected French champagnes. Franschhoek favourites include the award-winning producers Le Lude, La Motte, Black Elephant Vintners, Colmant and Boschendal, among others.
