Bubbly lovers will be delighted to hear that after a two-year absence, the Franschhoek Cap Classique & Champagne Festival is back!

Splendiforous Graham Beck

Once again presented by Sanlam Private Wealth, the two-day event is set to take place at the Franschhoek Monument on Saturday December 3 and Sunday December 4 from 11:00 to 16:00. Tickets are now available from Webtickets and cost R450 per person – including a souvenir tasting glass and 10 tasting coupons.

The only way to go

Festivalgoers will get to enjoy Cap Classiques from Graham Beck, Anthonij Rupert, Villiera, Morena and many more. Fabulous fare from a variety of stalls and local favourite restaurants will keep the hunger pangs at bay, and live music from local superstar Amy Jones and DJ Shen FM will add to the elegant yet laid back atmosphere of the garden-party-style event.

As in previous years, the dress code is Blue & White, and those judged the best dressed will be in line to win great prizes on both days.

I can smell it from here

Tickets will be much sought after as bubbly lovers are going to want to make up for the missed two years, so pre-booking is essential as the new look and feel allows for a limited number of guests only.

Always great fun so book, fire up the motoring piece and head to Franschhoek.
