Definition of Craft: An activity involving skill in making things by hand; denoting or relating to food or drink made in a traditional or non-mechanised way by an individual or a small company.
Get out of hand at the inaugural Franschhoek Craft Festival this summer. The event will be taking place at Môreson wine farm on November 5 between 11am and 5pm.
Visitors will be able to experience a selection of specially curated, handcrafted food and drink as well as specialised and limited edition pieces, including art, jewellery and luxury leather goods.

Local wines, Cap Classique, craft brews and small batch spirits will be the main attractions. Môreson’s farm restaurant, Bread & Wine, will be on-hand with their artisan charcuterie and breads, with many other craft and fine food producers taking matters into their own hands offering cheeses, pastries, chocolates and more.
Visitors can also look forward to live musical entertainment. The event is a family friendly affair, so feel to free to take along the little ones as well. The organisers have promised something to appeal to just about every taste.

“This will be hands-down the best showcase of all South Africa’s local craft-producers. I’m excited not because people are making craft goods, but that there are doing them so fabulously. Come see for yourself,” says GM of Môreson, Nikki Friedman.
The family owned and run Môreson is home to Miss Molly Wine and Bubbly and Môreson Wines and MCC.

Tickets, which include entry and tastings of the wines on show, cost R180 per person and can be booked directly via www.webtickets.co.za.
