Franschhoek Uncorked Festival 2016

Tis the season of spring and what better way to enjoy all things new than sampling the latest wine releases at this year’s Franschhoek Uncorked Festival. The event takes place over Heritage weekend on 24 and 25 September 2016.

This is the ideal opportunity to travel from farm to farm tasting wines from the Franschhoek Vignerons. Visitors can also look forward to wonderful festival offerings – the perfect excuse to stock up on wine for the upcoming festive season. And not only will there be an assortment of wines but delicious food cooked over an open flame as Franschhoek prepares to Braai4Heritage.

As an extra, outdoor enthusiast will be able to participate in a selection of outdoor activities such as mountain biking, trail runs and more over the weekend.

For the annual Franschhoek Bastille regulars, the organisers state that the Franschhoek Uncorked Festival adopts a travelling wine farm concept, yet still retains the festive atmosphere that you would experience at Bastille and is equally as popular.

To avoid queues and disappointment pre-book your uncorked weekend pass through webtickets. Tickets costs R140 per person and allows you access to all the participating wine farms as well as a complimentary tasting glass and free wine tasting.

With so much on offer you’ll be forgiven for wanting to make a weekend of your uncorked experience.

Jenny Prinsloo, Franschhoek Wine Valley CEO concludes: “Spring is here, and we look forward to welcoming visitors to the Valley for Franschhoek Uncorked festivities. With the weather warming up this is the perfect opportunity to take in the sights and sounds of Franschhoek whilst sampling new vintage releases from our participating producers.”
