The countdown has begun for one of Gauteng’s most anticipated celebrations of wine, food and art. At the Winter Sculpture Fair on 11 and 12 May 2019, aficionados of the finer things in life will get the opportunity to bask in a one-of-a-kind outdoor theatre filled with contemporary art, and the delectable food and wine of the famous Franschhoek Valley.
Franschhoek Cellar will be joining other leading wineries at the annual Winter Sculpture Fair at the spectacular NIROX Foundation Sculpture Park in the Cradle of Humankind. This is one of Joburg’s most loved events, where wine, food and art meet in a breathtaking natural arena. Now in its 7th year, this year’s Winter Sculpture Fair will feature the biggest line-up of wineries and food offerings ever, as well as a special Mother’s Day focus.
The 2019 art exhibition is a particularly topical one for South Africans, titled Power of Site. It explores energy within the rich contextual landscape of the Cradle of Humankind. 12 international and 5 local artists will give a new perspective on our understanding of energy and strategies for accessing and using it.
Visitors will be treated to a select tasting of Franschhoek Cellar’s popular wines, while Jerry Kennedy, Franschhoek Cellar’s acclaimed chef known for his vibrant seasonal-inspired cooking, will be preparing some of his mouth-watering signature dishes like crispy vegetable won tons with Dukkah spice, spicy duck spring rolls with a hoisin glaze and BBQ pork slivers with mustard aioli and a tangy slaw on toasted Panini.
Tickets for the Winter Sculpture Fair can be purchased via Webtickets. Franschhoek Cellar is giving one lucky follower and his/her partner the opportunity to experience this not-to-be-missed event with us.
