“The Franschhoek Cap Classique and Champagne Festival is a highlight of the local social calendar, and MasterCard is delighted to once again present the best of South African food and wine to visitors coming from around the country,” says Nadine Mouton, Vice President, Marketing, MasterCard, South Africa. “Sampling exquisite, locally-produced dishes and Cap Classiques in a naturally-beautiful setting that is rich in history, like that offered by Franschhoek is simply priceless.”
Visitors can luxuriate in grand marquee on the lawns the legendary Huguenot Monument or learn from star winemakers as they present some of South Africa’s top Méthode Cap Classiques (MCC) and France’s best Champagnes. There will be sumptuous eats made by some of Franschhoek’s best restaurants – including Bread & Wine, The SalmonBar, Haute Cabrière, Le Franschhoek, L’Ermitage, Restaurant at Grande Provence and Mont Rochelle – to complement the bubbly.
