Franschhoek Cap Classique and Champagne Festival 2017

The Franschhoek Cap Classique and Champagne Festival - a highlight on the festive calender is soon to take place 2 and 3 December 2017 at the prestigious Hugenot Monument in Franschhoek. The event, which will once again be presented to Mastercard, is a not-to-be-missed event for all self-proclaimed bubbly lovers.

Visitors can relax on the sprawling green amidst the Huguenot Monument while local winemakers present some of South Africa’s top Méthode Cap Classiques (MCC) and France’s best Champagnes.

There will be an array of sumptuous, locally-prepared eats by some of Franschhoek’s finest restaurants to complement the bubbly.

With the winemaking methods so similar in the Champagne and Franschhoek regions, success comes down to the terroir from which the grapes are sourced and the winemaker's finely honed skills – something that South African winemakers have mastered throughout the years.

Exploring Franschhoek further, visitors will uncover world-class shops and boutiques for a unique shopping experience, and be able to visit the many winefarms in the nearby vicinity.

“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.”

The festival is open between 12pm and 5pm daily.

Why not make it a decadent weekend away?
