Fans of this unusual varietal will once again get the chance to celebrate their favourite grape at the family-owned Avontuur Wine Estate between Stellenbosch and Somerset West.
In addition to the tastings and purchasing of wines directly from the wineries, visitors can book for tutored tastings of top wines in the Cab Franc Challenge.
“This is the only chance to taste the Top 6 together as many of these wines are extremely rare and were kept aside especially for the tutored tastings,” says organisor Cobie van Oort from CVO Marketing.
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.
Participating wineries are: Avontuur Estate, CK Wines, Doolhof Wine Estate, Edgebaston, Hannay Wines, Hermanuspietersfontein, Knorhoek Wine Farm, Lynx Wines, My Wyn, Nelson Wine Estate, Oldenburg Vineyards, Ormonde Vineyards, Raats Family Wines, Rainbow’s End Wine Estate, The Garajeest, Uva Mira Mountain Vineyards, Vrede en Lust, Warwick Estate, Whalehaven, Zorgvliet Wines.
