Franschhoek Cap Classique & Champagne Festival

End the year off on a high note at this year’s Franschhoek Cap Classique and Champagne Festival ‘The Magic of Bubbles’, Presented by MasterCard, which takes place over the weekend of 29 and 30 November 2014.

Relax in the grand marquee situated on the lawns surrounding Franschhoek’s iconic Huguenot Monument or engage with winemakers as they present some of South Africa’s finest Méthode Cap Classiques (MCC) and France’s best Champagnes. Complementing the selection of bubblies are mouth-watering delights offered by the local restaurants that have firmly entrenched Franschhoek’s status as one of the world’s premier culinary destinations.

“The Franschhoek Cap Classique and Champagne Festival is a highlight of the local social calendar, and MasterCard is delighted to once again present the best of South African food and wine to visitors coming from around the country,” says Nadine Mouton, Vice President, Marketing, MasterCard, South Africa. “Sampling exquisite, locally-produced dishes and Cap Classiques in a naturally-beautiful setting that is rich in history, like that offered by Franschhoek, is simply priceless.”

Well-known local MCC producers at the Festival include Pierre Jourdan, Morena, Môreson, La Motte, Boschendal, Leopard’s Leap, Noble Hill, Plaisir de Merle, Anthonij Rupert Wines, Graham Beck Wines, Krone, Pongracz, Simonsig, Steenberg and Villiera. Some of France’s best Champagnes will be represented by brands such as Piper Heidsieck, Champagne Guy Charbaut and Veuve Clicquot.

Bread & Wine, The SalmonBar, Haute Cabrière, Le Franschhoek, L’Ermitage, Restaurant at Grande Provence and Mont Rochelle are a few of the restaurants showcasing their menus during the festival.

The theme for this year’s festival is black and white, with an emphasis on Parasols and Panama hats. In keeping with tradition, a prize will be awarded to the best-dressed couple on each day.

Rumoured to have the blue-prints for Krang's TechnoDrome, stolen straight from Dimension X, he’s the type of guy who exudes so much coolness that he adds whole countries on Facebook at one time instead of just people. Always up for a party and a Tequila shot or two this is the guy who we always call first, both before and after a night out…
