It’s been quite the year, so it had better end with some bubbles in it, right? Book your tickets now for the wildly popular and wildly wonderful Franschhoek Cap Classique & Champagne Festival, ‘The Magic of Bubbles’ on 30 November & 1 December 2019.

Kickstart the festive season on a fashionable high note at the annual Franschhoek Cap Classique & Champagne Festival, ‘The Magic of Bubbles’, presented by Sanlam Private Wealth. One of SA’s premier social calendar highlights, this year’s event takes place over the weekend of 30 November and 1 December at the iconic Huguenot Monument.

For those preferring a laid-back stylish experience, Sunday’s offering aka ‘The Big Bubbly Brunch’, should not be missed. Mingle with friends as you sample the wide range of local MCCs as well as select French champagnes on offer. Franschhoek favourites include the award-winning producers Le Lude, La Motte, Black Elephant Vintners, Colmant  and Boschendal, amongst others.
