In case the grapevine news hasn’t reached you, here’s what you missed. Franschhoek’s Bastille Festival is still on the cards, but instead of the traditional format, the festival will be coming to you.

A first-of-its-kind for Franschhoek, the organisers have called on the support of its members to showcase the valley through the lens of locals. Your virtual journey through Franschhoek starts on 1 July as we showcase to you some of the region’s finest offerings. Each day until 10 July you get to ‘encounter’ something new. Experience Franschhoek as locals do – foraging for mushrooms, horse riding amongst the vineyards, a sunrise sabrage, art and sipping superb wines are just some of the highlights you can expect to see. 

You don’t want to miss out on the countdown days as we’ve lined up amazing offers which will only be revealed on the relevant day. These include wine, restaurant, accommodation and retail offers only available for this event. 

The countdown culminates with Saturday, 11 July which would have been the day for the actual festival. A jam packed day of Franschhoek festivities have been planned to celebrate Franschhoek’s French heritage. Check into our social media platforms throughout the day for an exciting line, which includes all things Franschhoek inspired. Coffee, sabrage, cocktails, great food and live music.

Don’t forget to dress up in your red, white and blue as we celebrate one of SA’s longest running events.

Traditionally Rosés are enjoyed during the warmer months, but the versatility of this varietal has resulted in it being enjoyed throughout the year. Also, geared initially at women there is a growing trend amongst men to be seen to enjoy a good Rosé every now and then.

Annually International Rosé Day is celebrated on the 4th Friday in June, which this year happens to fall on 26 June. Although the Cape is preparing for another extreme cold front this weekend, which would automatically call for a robust red, why not break with tradition and savour a glass of Rosé instead.
