Musical Events



Shakespeare said, if music be the food of love, play on.  We have plenty of food in Franschhoek and we have plenty of music to accompany it.

Regular Classical Music concerts are held throughout the year at La Motte and during the Chamber Music Weekend as well as other activities.

Our local social venues have live cover bands on many nights of the week and we regularly host well-known South African artists who perform at Franschhoek Cellars. 


Combine your love of music and wine and book a Music and Wine Pairing at one of our newest vineyards.  A unique activity for your next birthday or other group event.

Spring is around the corner and soon our valley will be hosting quite a few musical events.   

Check back regularly to see what is on in and around the village.

MUSIC AND WINE PAIRING

By Black Elephant Vintners
Being the rebels of the vine, traditional wine and cheese pairings are not what you will find at Black Elephant Vintners. Instead, we offer a dexterously composed Music and Wine pairing. This novel approach to enhance the experience of the wine tasting process by utilising not only the senses of taste, touch, smell, and sight is what distinguishes Black Elephant Vintners from the others. This unique combination of sound and taste completely sets Black Elephant apart from the commercial wine industry. 

Generally, we allow 2-3 hours for a tasting at the farm, but as there is no set agenda this can vary according to the extent of the conversation.  A silent disco tasting option is also available.

WHEN: They are held most Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 11am. (subject to variation)

COST: R360pp but used as a credit against purchases of R500pp or more on wines etc.
