Noble Hill, Holden Manz Wine Estate, Rickety Bridge Winery, Dieu Donné Vineyards, Topiary Wines and Black Elephant Vintners, amongst others, are some of the producers participating in this year’s not to be missed Franschhoek Uncorked Festival.
Pack the car and set off for the winelands with its fresh country air and exquisite views whilst travelling from farm to farm. Be sure not to miss some of the live entertainment on offer as you plan your voyage of discovery of the region’s great wines and delectable culinary treats. With most of the Franschhoek wineries participating in this fun two-day festival, there promises to be something for everyone which includes cellar and vineyard tours, barrel tastings, food and wine pairings, old school lawn games, to name but a few.
