Celebrating Franschhoek Bastille Festival In Style

We hope that you’ve enjoyed your virtual journey through Franschhoek thus far. With each day’s reveal we’ve let you in on how Franschhoek is seen through the eyes of locals. Let’s not forget about the amazing daily reveals of exceptional offers, which are revealed daily and available for the whole of July.

Although new offers are revealed daily you have the whole of July to select which one suits your needs.

However, let’s not forget Saturday, 11 July which would have been the actual festival date, and instead has been transformed into a day of virtual celebration and festivities. In typical Franschhoek style you can expect a day filled with wine, food and all things Bastille inspired. The programme for the day is as follows:

12pm :  Keeping it French and Franschhoek inspired with Topiary Wines.

12:30pm :   Mixing it up with Leopard’s Leap Family Vineyards’ wine cocktails.

1pm :  Lunch in Franschhoek – lunch prepared by one of Franschhoek’s well known chefs.

2pm :  Taking things up a notch with Black Elephant Vintner’s Music & Wine Pairing.

3pm :  Let’s get the party started with Newton & Co for a live music concert.

4pm :  Join local band, Uncorked as they entertain you at Franschhoek Pass Winery where owner, Nick Davies will sabrage his Morena MCC and we will delight you with guest appearance by the gorgeous muso Carol Thorns.

The setting for both musical acts is absolutely magical and is the perfect ending to the day. The venue is the home of local and Uncorked band member, Nick Davies, which boasts spectacular 360-degree views of the valley. A reminder of why we can’t wait to have you back for a visit.

With the relaxation of Level 3 regulations, and weather permitting, a drive out to Franschhoek on the 11th would be the pièce de résistance in celebrating what has become our new normal. As a safe and trusted destination, a visit to Franschhoek would certainly be a highlight. Dress up in your red, white and blue and keep things French.

For those viewing from the comfort of their homes there is an opportunity for you to win 12 bottles of wines from the Franschhoek Wine Valley. Simply post a picture of you in your red, white and blue outfit, publish to your social media platforms and tag Franschhoek Wine Valley to stand the chance of winning this awesome prize.
