Franschhoek MCC Festival & South African Blog Awards

For those who don’t know, this weekend is the fabulous Franschhoek Cap Classique & Champagne Festival.  Taking place on the lawns of the Huguenot Monument at the foot of the Franschhoek pass, you could not ask for a more spectacular setting!

The girls and I had some pre-ceremony wedding photographs there and it is beautiful.

But this weekend, the champagne (and MCC) will be flowing, with delicious food on offer, best dressed competitions and live entertainment.

So if you haven’t yet got your tickets, head over to and get cracking.  There are a host of local MCC producers as well as genuine French Champagne makers who will all have their varietals available for tasting.  Tickets cost R200 and will give you entrance to the festival, a complimentary tasting glass and tasting coupons.  Don’t forget to dress in your black and white, stripes and polka dots!

Being a newish blogger, this is the first time I can actually enter the South African blog awards.

I love posting my pictures and chatting about the beautiful Winelands we have around here.  So if you enjoy reading this blog as much as I enjoy posting, click on the voting badge on the right and give me a vote :).

Public voting starts on 2 December 2013 and lasts until 13 December 2013.

Head over to the SA Blog Awards website and check out some of the other awesome blogs in the other categories too.  Happy voting!

Have a lovely weekend!
