What’s in Store?
Aside from enjoying various red, white, rosé and MCC fruits of the vine at their respective wineries, there are also some fun, themed tastings, bespoke meals, live music, and some traditional lawn games that can be enjoyed by the whole family.
Although themed towards those over the age of 18, Franschhoek Uncorked is still a family-friendly event with activities suited to each member of your group such as art exhibitions, flower bulb markets, vineyard tours and much more.
While this event is fantastic for the entire family to enjoy, it also enables visitors to the area an opportunity to stay in some of the lovely local hotels and B&B’s. As Franschhoek is known as the culinary capital of South Africa, Franschhoek Uncorked is the perfect opportunity to try some of the highly acclaimed restaurants in and around this vibrant town – if you’re not too full from the day’s events of course!
Located on the outskirts of the town, Le Franschhoek Hotel & Spa offers a peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle during this fun-filled weekend. Le Franschhoek’s 3 restaurants ensure you need not venture too far to enjoy various culinary delights during your stay.
