The Leopard’s Leap Family Vineyards is once again hosting the Franschhoek Summer Wines festival in celebration of the valley’s top wines.

The Franschhoek Wine Valley is regarded as one of SA’s top wine destinations. Now in its 5th year, this relaxing festival has become a social calendar highlight, with more guests expected every year.


Franschhoek winemakers have carefully selected the best white, rosé and Méthode Cap Classique varieties for the summer season. You have the opportunity to mingle with the winemakers while sipping the superb wines.


There will be some delicious summer-inspired foods on offer from market stalls, and the rotisserie kitchen will be cooking up succulent meats using a state-of-the-art Rotisol. Relax on the veranda or the rolling green lawns as you tuck into a delectable lunch. Enjoy live music from local performers as you take in the magnificent views of the valley.


Keep things fresh and dress elegantly in white for this sumptuous affair. There will be plenty of shade under the white umbrellas and with the impressive mountains as a backdrop, it’s a picturesque soirée indeed.

Head to the picturesque Franschhoek Wine Valley and celebrate high summer in style.
