Franschhoek Winter Wines Festival – This Weekend

This weekend is the Franschhoek Winter Wines festival, 17 August 2013!
There tickets are a little more than the usual festival at R180 per person, but the event takes place in the Franschhoek Motor Museum on the L’Ormarins Estate.  There is usually a cover charge for the museum, but this weekend you will be in amongst the vintage cars with over 100 years of motoring history, tasting some of Franschhoek’s finest wines.
The festival runs from 12 – 5pm with live entertainment throughout the afternoon.
