On Saturday, 20 May from 11h00 - 17h00, the Cabernet Franc Carnival Cape Town event will take place at Avontuur Estate between Stellenbosch and Somerset West. Taste and buy the wines directly from the wineries, enjoy live entertainment, food trucks and food stalls. Tickets are R200 pp which includes all tastings, a R50 discount coupon to spend on food, as well as a tasting glass.
Visitors can also book for one of three tutored tastings of the Top 6 wines of the 2017 Cabernet Franc Challenge, presented by head of the 2017 judging panel and Cape Wine Master, Christine Rudman. Tickets for the tutored tasting costs R75pp extra and only three sessions of 20 persons each can be accommodated.
The very popular public "vote" to choose the favourite wine of the day, will once again take place which will give an interesting perspective on the differences between expert and amateur palates.
Tickets are limited which ensures a quality experience. Visitors are welcome to socialise at one of the food venues, listen to music and enjoy a one-on-one interaction with winemakers.
