IT’S CARNIVAL TIME IN GAUTENG WITH CAB FRANC IN 2017

After two successful years of the Cabernet Franc Carnival, presented by Avontuur Estate, fans of unusual varietals in Gauteng will also get the chance to experience this grape and discover the magic of Cabernet Franc.

On Friday, 2 June from 17h00-21h00, winemakers will be at Wanderers Club in Johannesburg to show off their wines.   At both events, visitors can taste and buy the wines directly from the wineries.

“It’s an intimate event with visitors interacting with wineries, enjoying a meal or snack during the event and relaxing with friends in between tastings,” says Cobie van Oort of CVO Marketing, organisor of the Carnival.

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, especially after the results of the blind judging of the 2017 Cabernet Franc Challenge were released in early March.

Participating wineries include:   Avontuur Estate,  Edgebaston,   Hermanuspietersfontein,  Lynx Wines,  Nelson Wine Estate, Oldenburg Vineyards, Ormonde Vineyards, Raats Family Wines, Rainbow’s End Wine Estate, The Garajeest,  Uva Mira Mountain Vineyards, Warwick Estate, Whalehaven and Zorgvliet Wines.

Tickets are R200 pp which includes the tastings, a R50 discount coupon to spend on food and a tasting glass.  Tickets from   www.plankton.mobi or www.computicket.co.za  as well as at Computicket branches.
