The Cabernet Franc Carnival is a niche event, which took place at Stellenbosch-based winery, Avontuur Estate over the last five years. Around 350 fans rock 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 event took place at Avontuur on Saturday, 19 May from 11h00-16h00. In 2019 the date is set for 18 May. Once again the Top 6 of the 2019 Cabernet Franc Challenge will be offered in a tutored tasting set-up for 3 groups of 20 each.
Tickets are R275 each online and R300 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 www.plankton.mobi and www.computicket.co.za on 15 March 2019.
