Franschhoek flies the flag for local food and wine, so it fits that the 2016 Uncorked Festival falls on Heritage Day.  This coming Saturday and Sunday 24 – 25 September, celebrate heritage in your own way over a glass or two or three of top Franschhoek wine, paired with delicious food. And yes, Franschhoek also joins Braai4Heritage this weekend so there will be a chop or two! And plenty more besides.

Read the full festival programme by clicking on this link: 2016 Franschhoek Uncorked Festival.

The notable participants Rickety Bridge, GlenWood, Anthonij Rupert Wyne, Grand Provence, Black Elephant Vintners, Boekenhoutskloof, La Bri, Noble Hill, Plaisir de Merle, Leopard’s Leap, Dieu Donné, Haute Cabriére, Maison Estate, Topiary Wines and La Chataigne, Lynx Wines, Boschendal and Allée Bleue.

Wine estates will be pushing out the boat with Braai4Heritage as the Food Theme, so expect everything and anything from tacos, Spanish churros and chocolate to the sound of  flamenco guitar, snoekbraais, boerewors, Black Angus beef burgers, smoked brisket sliders, braaibroodjies and roosterkoek, food trucks and just too much to mention!

Remember meals are not included in your entrance ticket price.

You can travel from farm to farm, sampling wines from the famous Franschhoek Vignerons. Visitors can also look forward to amazing festival offerings – a great chance to stock up on wine for the upcoming festive season! It’s just impossible to take in everything on a single day, so why not make a weekend of it?
