Extend your Heritage Day celebrations and join Grande Provence at the annual Franschhoek Uncorked Festival for a relaxing weekend of wine tasting and a gourmet braai feast.
As one of the participating wineries from Saturday to Sunday, September 26 and 27, Grande Provence will offer visitors a taste of both their signature label and easy-drinking Angels Tears wines, with complimentary tastings of the 2015 Grande Provence Rosé and 2015 Angels Tears Red at their tasting room.
Wine lovers can pre-book for flagship tastings with winemaker Karl Lambour in the private dining room in the elegantly appointed Jonkershuis from 11am to 11.30am daily.
Keeping in the spirit of Heritage and Braai Day, Executive Chef Darren Badenhorst has designed a special menu of braai favourites with his signature twist of unexpected bursts of flavour.
Think mini curry lamb potjie bunnies with micro coriander and local yoghurt raita, or lemon and herb marinated deboned quail sosaties. Try the gourmet braaibroodjies filled with 18 hour pulled pork, mozzarella, smoked tomato jam and foraged vineyard herbs, or opt for a seafood braai choice of prawn skewers with black garlic, lemon grass and charred red onion.
For an even more relaxed visit, visitors can order pre-packed picnic baskets or cheese boards to enjoy with views of the Sculpture Garden and surrounding mountains.
The braai menu at Grande Provence costs R55 per serving and picnic baskets for two are R295 per couple.
