Spring is here and what better time to embrace this cheerful season in all its finery than at this year’s Franschhoek Uncorked Festival, which takes place over the weekend of 15 and 16 September. Discover a plethora of experiences as you travel from one estate to the next sampling fabulous new release wines on offer.

The participating Franschhoek Vignerons will be pulling out all of the stops as they showcase their selection of vintage releases, ranging from MCC’s, white wines and Rosés to red varietals. With two days to explore the finest wines in the valley,  it’s the perfect excuse to stock up for the upcoming festive season. Adding extra pizzazz to the festivities visitors can expect to find other unforgettable experiences included in the wine sampling lineup. These include themed tastings, bespoke meals, live music, old school lawn games and more.
