Franschhoek Uncorked Festival is back this spring to present a weekend of exploring one of South Africa’s premier wine destinations while uncovering a fine selection of wine gems from the Franschhoek Vignerons.

This year, more than 12 wineries will participate to showcase this season’s new release wines, which include MCCs, white wines, rosés and even a few Summer inspired red varietals.

Over 12 wineries will be participating to showcase this season’s new release wines.

On the weekend of October 16 and 17, guests will also be spoiled with live music and great food under exquisite views as they check out new wineries. The two-day event will also offer guests an option to stay over at one of the valley’s luxurious accommodation establishments, ranging from quaint B&Bs and guest houses to 5-star boutique hotels.
