Drinking wine on the Leopard’s Leap lawns: Franschhoek Summer Wines

You’d be forgiven for thinking we’re a bunch of drunkards in the Cape, judging by the number of wine festivals we have each year.

Well, we make wine here, so who’s going to drink it if not us? Besides, 2017 has kicked off on such a high note, I see no reason not to celebrate in every way we can.

Make sure to book your tickets early. This annual jol at Leopard’s Leap Wine Estate is such fun, you don’t want to miss out!

“Get ready for a high summer celebration at this year’s Franschhoek Summer Wines, Saturday, 4 February at Leopard’s Leap Family Vineyards. Come and taste the Franschhoek Vigneron’s choice for summer. White, rosé, Méthode Cap Classique and light reds – all will be revealed on the day!

The wines have been handpicked by the winemakers to complement the hot summer days. Pair your favourites with delicious food from the rotisserie kitchen, as you relax on the veranda or the sprawling lawn with panoramic views of the valley. Live entertainment completes what promises to be a perfect day out in the winelands.

Keeping things cool, dress elegantly in white.

Tickets are available from at R180 per person.  This includes a wine glass and a tasting of all the wines on show between 12pm and 5pm.”
