Get ready for barrels of fun in the vineyards, fine wines and a laid back country picnic at the annual Grande Provence Harvest Festival in Franschhoek on Saturday, 24 February 2018.

Kicking off at 09h30, the Harvest Festival has lined up a fun-filled morning of tractor rides, grape picking to the beat of a vibrant troop of Cape minstrels, grape stomping, and a cellar tour and tasting. With all the vineyard activities done and dusted, a relaxed harvest picnic is the perfect antidote. Whether you prefer your picnic at long harvest-style tables or on an outstretched blanket under the oaks, you’ll love the selection of country fare prepared by Grande Provence Executive Chef Guy Bennett. The classic Harvest Festival picnic includes a bottle of wine per couple and is jam packed with local artisanal charcuterie, cheeses, house-made preserves and pickles, a variety of salads, farm-style bread, and delicious choc chip cookies. If you want to take your picnic experience up a notch, the Luxury picnic basket has additional oysters fresh from the Grande Provence oyster tank, a bottle of Grande Provence Méthode Cap Classique and a selection of handmade chocolate truffles.

There will be plenty of activities to keep the little ones entertained while you explore the fine selection of Grande Provence and Angels Tears wines, available by the bottle and glass.

Situated in the picturesque Franschhoek valley and part of the internationally acclaimed Huka Retreats, Grande Provence embraces true South African wine heritage, excellent food at The Restaurant, and luxury accommodation at the Owner’s Cottage and La Provençale. So why not stay over and make a weekend out of it?
