There is something magical about wintertime in the winelands. Crisp, clear air, cozy fireplaces and, if we’re lucky, snow-capped mountains surrounding the vineyards. This June you can celebrate the season and the best from the Franschhoek valley at Franschhoek Winter Wines, taking place at L’Ormarins on Saturday 16 June.
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.
You can also look forward to comfort foods prepared by the Terra Del Capo chefs. Think Salsiccia Sausages with braised Cannellini Beans; oven baked Potato Soup with gourmet toppings; and Wild Mushroom Arancini served with Truffle Aioli, all designed to compliment that robust red in your glass.
You’ll also get to view the vintage and luxury vehicles while sipping fine wines.
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.
