The Cabernet Franc Carnival is a niche event, which took place at Stellenbosch-based winery, Avontuur Estate over the last two years. Around 300 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 2017 the Cape Town event takes place at Avontuur again on Saturday, 20 May from 11h00-17h00.  Once again the Top 6 of the 2017 Cabernet Franc Challenge will be offered in a tutored tasting set-up for 3 groups of 20 each.

The new addition, a Cab Franc Carnival in Gauteng, takes place at Wanderer’s Club on Friday 2 June from 17h00-21h00.

Tickets for both events are R200 each 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 1 March 2017.
