The Franschhoek Uncorked Festival returns on the weekend of 15 and 16 September 2018, which means wine lovers can once again prep for spring in good spirits.
And it’s the perfect excuse to stock up for the upcoming festive season.
Highlights will include themed tastings, bespoke meals, live music, old school lawn games, and of course – top class South African wine. Basically, the Franschhoek Uncorked Festival 2018 is a great opportunity to explore one of South Africa’s premier wine destinations, and see what’s on offer at these popular Franschhoek estates.
New release wines
Festival goers can travel from one estate to the next, and sample the wines on offer. These include new release wines as well as a few other not-to-be missed gems.
The two-day festival offers Franschhoek’s winemakers the platform to showcase their selection of new release wines, which range from MCC’s to white wines and rosés to red varietals. Participating farms will pull out all the stops as they showcase all their creations.
Make a weekend of it
With so much on offer it’s probably best to avoid driving and make a weekend of your Uncorked experience. Book into one of Franschhoek’s luxurious accommodation establishments – which range from quaint B&B’s and guest houses to 5-star boutique hotels. This will allow you ample time for a leisurely stroll down the main road, uncovering world-class shops, art galleries and boutiques during Franschhoek Uncorked 2018.
