Franschhoek Uncorked at Solms-Delta

Franschhoek Uncorked is an annual celebration of spring in the valley where wine estates are given the opportunity to showcase their new vintages. It is a series of wine tastings between participating wine farms of the area, of which Solms-Delta is one.

This year the Festival takes place on Saturday 7 & Sunday 8 September 2013.
Celebrate all things “van die Kaap” at Solms-Delta: Cape music, Kaapse food, Kaapse wine and a visit to the Museum van der Caab.  Regular performances of lively traditional music from the rural Cape and pairings of exquisite Cape fusion food with award-winning Cape wines. Stay a while and enjoy the a la carte lunch, or for those on the move from farm to farm and unable to linger, choose the quick and easy-to-order special Uncorked Cape Style Deli Platter.
