Franschhoek Uncorked

Spring has sprung (even though it does not feel like it) and that means it is time for Uncorked festival in Franschhoek.  This year we are doing something completely different and pulling out all the stops for our guests.  A touch of something exciting and strange and just that little something extra to make you feel special…


Enter a world beyond your wildest dreams where humans become tables, characters walk around on sky-high legs and statues start to move… This world will also entice your taste buds with award-winning wines and carnival-style foods, served by beautiful creatures in red, with a wine knowledge that you only dream about… Hidden between these beautiful creatures are small treats of Lindt chocolates, strawberries and amazing prizes to be won. Test your strength and aim a ball at a floating circle in our vineyard of dreams. Sounds too good to be true? Make sure you visit Vrede en Lust but beware; you might not want to return to the real world…

Bespoke event: Artisan white wine tasting and cellar tour.  The labels of our Artisan range are reproduced from Susan’s original handwriting and only limited cases are available per year. Once a year we allow non-wine club members to taste this range in the intimate surroundings of our cellar.

Maximum 6 people per tasting @ R50pp. 8 September 11:30-12:30.
