The 2018 Cabernet Franc Carnival will once again bring one of the most interesting wine varietals to an adoring public.
On Saturday, 19 May 2018, the Carnival takes place at scenic Avontuur Estate between Stellenbosch and Somerset West.
Visitors can taste and buy the wines directly from the wineries.
The interactive tutored tastings of the 2018 Cab Franc Challenge Top 6 wines is an integral part of the Carnival and is often the only place to taste these winning wines due to small volumes produced. Tickets costs R100 pp extra and a limited number of seats per session is available.
The very popular public “vote” to choose the favourite wine of the day, will again take place which gives an interesting perspective on the differences between expert and amateur palates.
The participating wineries are: Avontuur Estate, Chamonix, Delaire Graff, Druk My Niet Wine Estate, Hermanuspietersfontein Wines, Kunjani Wines, Morgenster Wine and Olive Estate, My Wyn, Onderkloof Wine Estate, Oldenburg Vineyards, Ormonde Vineyards, Raats Family Wines, Rainbow’s End Wine Estate, Snow Mountain Wines – James McKenzie, Spookfontein Wines, The Garajeest, Vrede en Lust, Whalehaven, Zevenwacht.
Tickets are R220 pp which includes the tastings, a R50 discount coupon to spend on food and a tasting glass. Tickets from www.plankton.mobi . If bought at the event, tickets are R250 each.
