This month, the well-loved Grande Provence Wine & Dine Collaboration dinners will return to the Franschhoek winelands. The monthly dinners will be hosted at The Restaurant at Grande Provence and will feature flavourful culinary experiences paired with decadent wines.
Each dinner evening will be unique, with a different wine focus aimed at showcasing the best that Grande Provence has to offer. Winemaker Karl Lambour, together with a knowledgable group of fellow winemakers, will share the stories behind their wines, highlighting the overall experience for guests.
