Celebrate Spring Day with a taste of the brand new 2012 Holden Manz Rosť and enjoy two days of great festivities, live music, fine dining, exceptional wines and Spa treats as part of the popular Franschhoek Uncorked Festival.

Visit the festival tent at the Franschhoek Kitchen, the signature restaurant at Holden Manz, where ShenFm, fronted by Shen Winberg of Idols fame, will entertain music lovers, creating the perfect atmosphere to sip on the new Rosť on 1 September.

Boasting a beautiful salmon pink, peachy colour and subtle nuances of fresh strawberries and cherries with hints of minerality, the 2012 Holden Manz Rosť is the maiden vintage of winemaker Schalk Opperman. Enjoy this crisp, refreshing Spring aperitif with delicious tapas and light meals prepared by Executive Chef Cheyne Morrisby at the Franschhoek Kitchen during the festival. Wine lovers can savour exquisite pairings with local artisanal cheeses at the tasting room. Donít miss out on the Holden Manz flagship and Decanter Gold Medal winner, the Big G 2009.

For the ultimate festival indulgence, the Holden Manz Spa will offer Spring Specials such as the deluxe Shape Up For Summer Treatment (which includes an Africology Slimming Detox Mud Wrap Treatment) and the Top to Toe package (full body exfoliation and massage), as well as a revitalising quick massage at the festival tent.

The Franschhoek Uncorked Festival will take place from Saturday, 1 September to Sunday, 2 September from 11:00 to 17:00 on both days. Tickets are available at participating wineries, www.webtickets.co.za and the Franschhoek Wine Valley offices and cost R100 per person. For bookings at the Franschhoek Kitchen, call 021-8762729
