Franschhoek Cap Classique Festival

Now in its fifth successful year, the Franschhoek ‘Magic of Bubbles’ Cap Classique and Champagne Festival will be welcoming visitors from around the country over the weekend of 2 to 4 December to this annual social calendar highlight. This year’s festival will have a new fashionable twist with a black and white emphasis.

Taste some of France’s best Champagnes alongside the finest Cap Classiques to emerge from the wine cellars of South Africa. With the winemaking method virtually the same, it comes down to the terroir and skill of the winemakers, something which South African winemakers have mastered throughout the years

Visitors to the festival will be treated to multilayered gastronomic delights, as local restaurants get the chance to showcase Franschhoek’s status as one of the world’s premier culinary destinations.

This year the festival will take full advantage of the Cape’s glorious summer evenings, with the festival open from 6pm to 10pm on Friday, 2 December, and then between 12pm and 5pm on both Saturday, 3 and Sunday, 4 December.

An R180.00 per person entrance fee allows you access to the festival. You’ll also receive a complimentary tasting glass and booklet of tasting coupons. Additional tasting coupons will be available for purchase. Children under 18 years of age will be allowed free entry to the festival. Tickets available at WebTickets.
