Grande Provence Announces Harvest Festival 2013 Date

Written by

All budding vintners and wine aficionados – experience the magic of Harvest Day on Saturday, 23 February 2013 at Grande Provence Heritage Wine Estate, Franschhoek.

The Grande Provence Harvest Festival has become legendary in the Franschhoek valley and as always promises to be a great deal of fun and laughter for all the family to enjoy.  The day starts at 09h00 with coffee and fresh muffins served upon arrival followed by a tractor ride to the award-winning vineyards for the grape picking. At 10h30 guests move to The Cellar for a tour, wine tasting and a presentation by the General Manager and Winemaker Karl Lambour.

This is followed by stomping the freshly picked grapes in the actual barrels followed by a traditional hose down of your feet! From 11h15 guests then gather in the garden under the old oak tree for a scrumptious braai, under the watchful eye of Executive Chef Darren Badenhorst, accompanied by live musical entertainment throughout the afternoon.

Cost for the day is R295 per adult and R130 for children under 12. Included in the price, is one bottle of Angels Tears wine per adult, to be collected on your departure. The Harvest Festival is highly recommended as an excellent team building activity, special rates are given to groups of 10 guests or more.

It’s the perfect day to visit The Gallery and discover the latest art pieces on exhibition and also browse through The Shop.
