Bastille weekend

It is that special time of the year in Franschhoek when all the city slickers venture to the winelands for a weekend of good food, marvelous wines and all things French, that our town have to offer.

This year the Franschhoek Vignerons will strive to top the success of last year’s festival and welcome guests with open arms in town, but most of all in the main marquee in the center of town.  Tickets are available from webtickets for R150/person or if you prefer your luxury and being spoiled, you can buy VIP tickets.  Unfortunately the VIP tickets for Saturday are sold out but there are still a few available for Sunday.

As for Vrede en Lust, you know that you can expect nothing less than a little bit of magic… Susan has been keeping us all in the dark about the new vintage releases for the Jess, White Mischief & Syrah – visitors to our stand and tasting room this weekend will be the first to tast these new releases!

With the release of the new vintages we have decided to run a crazy bin-end special on the previous vintages of these wines which will ONLY be available in the tasting room this weekend.  Make a knot in your finger, a mark on your arm or put a reminder on your phone but do NOT  forget to visit our tasting room this weekend as this special will not be repeated and you will miss out if you don’t make use of this offer.

We look forward to having a French affair with you this weekend
