Franschhoek Summer Wines

Sip and swirl some of the region’s finest vintages at this summer vino fair at Leopard’s Leap Family Vineyards

It’s that time of the year when the weather is perfect and the Western Cape celebrates summer in many unique ways. Where better to make the most of the hot weather than at a fresh food and wine fair in the Cape Winelands?

The lovely folks at the Leopard’s Leap Family Vineyards invite connoisseurs and casual drinkers alike to toast the season in style at the 2017 Franschhoek Summer Wines festival on Saturday, 4 February 2017. For more information on the Franschhoek Summer Wines, phone +27 (0)21 876 2861. 

Sample the Franschhoek vignerons’ choice of vinos for summer, from white and rosé to red and Méthode Cap Classique. These carefully selected wines will be complemented by a smorgasbord of delicious food from the estates own rotisserie kitchen.

To keep things cool at the event, dress in white and enjoy a day out in the beautiful Winelands while the live entertainment fills the valley with sweet melodies.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT THE 2017 FRANSCHHOEK SUMMER WINES FESTIVAL AT LEOPARD'S LEAP

A DAY OF FUN IN THE SUN: Set at the classy Leopard’s Leap Family Vineyards in the picturesque Franschhoek Wine Valley, one of South Africa’s leading vino destinations, the sizzling summer soirée features many of the area’s top-notch wineries’ most impressive seasonal reds, whites and rosés. What’s more, the event also boasts a spread of yummy eats and live entertainment.

SIP FIRST-CLASS VINOS: Relax, unwind and sample the finest wines and fare this gourmet capital has to offer, surrounded by breathtaking scenery. Vino lovers can expect the crème de la crème of Franschhoek’s estates to showcase their exclusive produce.

NOSH ON GOURMET GOODS: Fine wines go best with delicious foods. Thus, the Leopard’s Leap kitchen will ensure that no one goes hungry. Guests can pick from a range of succulent rotisserie-cooked meats, deli-style dishes on sale at the harvest table, and an array of homemade desserts. All the mouth-watering fare is available on a pay-by-weight basis, so you can decide how much or how little you’d like to pack away.

DRESS TO IMPRESS: No summer soirée in Cape Town is complete without a dress code, and this event is no different. Fashionistas and dapper gents are encouraged to dress to impress, and the ‘elegantly white’ theme is simple enough to pull off.
