The Cabernet Franc Carnival is a niche event, which took place at Stellenbosch-based winery, Avontuur Estate over the last three years. Around 300 fans rocked up to taste, buy and enjoy some of the country’s best examples of this varietal,  produced by a passionate group of producers who do it for the “love of the wine”!

In 2018 the Cape Town event takes place at Avontuur on Saturday, 19 May from 11h00-16h00.  Once again the Top 6 of the 2018 Cabernet Franc Challenge will be offered in a tutored tasting set-up for 3 groups of 20 each.

After a successful first show in Gauteng in 2017, the Cab Franc Carnival in Gauteng, is planned again for The Wanderer’s Club on Friday 1 June from 17h00-21h00.

Tickets for both events are R200 each online and R250 at the door,  which includes a branded wine glass and a R50 food coupon to spend at the eateries present at each event.

Ticket sales open on and on 1 March 2018.
