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 and on 15 March 2019.
