Special of the Day! – Franschhoek Uncorked Festival

Who doesn’t enjoy slapping on a panama hat, sophisticatedly sipping some delicious vino and proclaiming to your friends, “hmm… it’s bouquet has a distinctive nutty air and there is a definite earthy after taste”. Well we sure as hell do, which is why we love the gem of a festival Franschhoek Uncorked. R100 gets you a weekend pass plus wine glass and free access and tasting at all participating wine farms over Saturday the 1st and Sunday the 2nd of September.

Franschhoek Uncorked runs from 11am till 5pm on Saturday and Sunday the 1st & 2nd of September (this weekend). Weekend tickets cost you R100 and grants you free access and tasting at all 19 farms. For all the necessary info check out the festival website here. Listing all the great farms and what they have to offer would just be ridiculous and probably take out half the fun of pretending you a connoisseur by just winging it with phrases like “yes yes, obviously a 05′ cab sav blend”. However our pick of the festival would have to be Lynx Wine Farm.

Lynx Wine Farm offer delicious tapas at R40 each with a menu consisting of chili and coriander calamari, spanish style mini fillet, spanish ham (jammon serrano and smoked salmon. You can also purchase your festival ticket directly at the farm. To find out how to get there look here. This year they are also running a special on their amazing Blanc de Noir and Cabernet Savignon. Buy 12 bottles of the Blance de Noir for R600 and get 12 bottles FREE, that works out to about R25 a bottle which is a steal! Buy 6 bottles of the Cab Sav for R780 and get 6 free working out to R65 a bottle, which for this caliber of wine is as good an investment as Apple shares. Be safe. Dress warm. Enjoy!
