* 2019 dates not yet confirmed * Winter is here, and the best part is that Franschhoek is #OpenForWinter. Brave the cold weather and head to the Franschhoek Motor Museum, L’Ormarins Estate for an old favourite, Franschhoek Winter Wines.
The intimate setting of the museum is the ideal location to mingle with the Franschhoek Vignerons who will be showcasing some of their finest seasonal red wines at this bespoke event. Participating wineries include Topiary, Black Elephant Vintners, Holden Manz, La Bri, Rickety Bridge, Haute Cabrière and Anthonij Rupert Wyne, amongst others.
Tasty comfort food, prepared by the chefs at Terra del Capo are guaranteed to complement your wines. Salsiccia Sausages with braised Cannellini Beans; oven baked Potato Soup with gourmet toppings; and Wild Mushroom Arancini served with Truffle Aioli are the perfect food partners to a robust red. The selection of mini cakes and sweet treats will satisfy any sugary craving.
Superb wines and comfort food are the perfect components for braving the cold weather, while you view some of the finest vintage and luxury vehicles on display. The Franschhoek Motor Museum offers visitors the opportunity to look back at more than 100 years of motoring history with its unique and exciting collection of vehicles, motorcycles, bicycles and memorabilia in the magnificent setting of L’Ormarins Estate. Vintage cars include a 1903 Ford and a 1935 Rolls Royce, whilst fans of the more modern luxurious cars can look forward to catching a glimpse of a 2002 Ferrari or the 2003 Mercedes Benz CLK DTM AMG.
Live music will round off what promises to be the perfect day out to the Franschhoek Wine Valley.
