There's hardly a better (time or) place to celebrate the harvest (and heritage month) than the spectacular winelands…

The annual Franschhoek Uncorked Festival rings in spring with a two-day celebration of wine tastings, good-value specials and fun outdoor activities. It’s also the perfect opportunity for festival-goers to enjoy varietals from established estates, and to discover new gems from the smaller jewels in the valley.

Your Uncorked Weekend Pass (R150) includes entry to the participating farms, a complimentary tasting glass and tastings of the wines on show. This year’s featured estates include:

  • Noble Hill
  • Plaisir de Merle
  • Allee Bleue
  • Boschendal
  • Lynx
  • Topiary & La Chantaigne
  • Leopards Leap Family Vineyards
  • Rickety Bridge
  • Mont Rochelle
  • Black Elephant
  • Dieu Donne
  • Haute Cabriere
  • La Bri
  • La Bourgogne
  • Holden Manz
  • La Couronne
  • Moreson


Spring is arguably the best season to visit the wonderfully scenic Franschhoek Valley, as the vineyards and orchards are in bloom. As such, visitors are encouraged to “farm hop” from one participating winery to the next, tasting vino along the way and, of course, stocking up your home cellar. And, while you’re in the area, you might want to sample Franschhoek’s world-class cuisine. You might even decide to stay over for a night or two at one of our favourite lodgings.
