Kick off the festive season with the annual Franschhoek Cap Classique & Champagne Festival. ‘The Magic of Bubbles’, presented by Sanlam Private Wealth is a fashionable moment on the social calendar and this year, takes place over the weekend of 30th November and 1st December at the iconic Huguenot Monument. There will be a wide range of local MCCs as well as select French champagnes on offer. Franschhoek favourites include the award-winning producers Le Lude, La Motte, Black Elephant Vintners, Colmant and Boschendal, amongst others.
This year, the festival breaks from tradition and offers a new dress code for the fashionable: Blue and White. On the Saturday, there will be a prize made available to the Best Dressed Couple in attendance. If you’re wondering what you could possibly wear, here’s some inspiration for you.
If you’re more interested in a calmer affair, perhaps consider Sunday’s ‘The Big Bubbly Brunch’, which offers a more laid-back, stylish experience. Tickets are current available via Webtickets at R395 per person for Saturday, 30 November and for R250 per person for Sunday, 1 December 2019. Weekend passes are also available at R550 per person. Festive tickets include access to the marquee and a complimentary tasting glass, as well as MCC and champagne tasting coupons. Additional vouchers can be purchased on the day.
This is certainly an event not to be missed. For more information and regular updates visit www.franschhoekmcc.co.za.
