The Decadent Affair

South Africa’s Franschhoek Valley is abuzz with anticipation for the annual Franschhoek Cap Classique & Champagne Festival. This opulent event, a highlight of the year, is all set to enthral guests this coming weekend. Sponsored by Sanlam Private Wealth, the festival is an elegant amalgamation of indulgence in its most exquisite forms. The historic Franschhoek Huguenot Monument provides a majestic backdrop for two days of lavishness. A flute and ten tasting tokens, included with every ticket, allow enthusiasts to sample all the Cap Classiques on display as well as a selection of champagnes.

More Than Just Bubbles

However, the festival extends beyond a mere appreciation of fine sparkling wines. It also encompasses a variety of live music performances that promise to be show stealers. Among these, the high-profile acoustic rock group Watershed, hailing from South Africa, will be performing on the inaugural day. Additionally, DJ Charles Lusengo from Johannesburg will be livening up the atmosphere with a vibrant blend of Latino, house, and beach club beats.

Leigh-Anne Williams, a renowned local radio personality, will serve as the energetic MC for the event. Her vibrant persona guarantees an additional touch of excitement to the festival. Renowned for its laid-back garden-party vibe, the event consistently provides an unforgettable experience for all attendees.

The Fashionable Franschhoek

In a unique twist, festival-goers are urged to adhere to a specific dress code. The combination of classic white and blue with a dash of silver is the suggested attire, adding a distinctive Franschhoek vibe to the event. The gathering is not solely about sipping the finest champagnes and enjoying music, but also about flaunting fashion prowess. There are attractive prizes up for grabs for the best-dressed guests. So, it’s time to refurbish your stylish wardrobe and join in the fashionable fun.

Exclusive Experiences and Collaboration

While the tasting tokens allow guests to sample an assortment of champagnes, an extensive range of champagnes will also be available for purchase, either by the glass or bottle. However, consistent with South African law, individuals under 18 years of age are not permitted entry into the festival.
