Commenting on some of the events The Franschhoek Cellar have recently hosted, Executive Chef Jerry Kennedy notes, “we’ve held such a diverse range of events here, but a recent standout one was a specialised tasting for the Women’s Presidents Organisation, who wanted something different and fun, for a group of highly successful and intelligent women. We were just one stop out of their route of wine tastings, but at the end of the day they returned to Franschhoek Cellars to purchase our wines! That says something.”

“We’ve also hosted a fantastic music concert for 300 people,” Jerry continues, “We received awesome feedback from those who attended, describing what an enjoyable evening they had! From security, parking and seating, to the flow of the event and service, as well as the drinks and food – everything came together seamlessly for a successful and fun experience for all involved.”

The Franschhoek Cellar as an event destination presents so many choices – the whole establishment is tastefully decorated and stylish, it offers privacy, exceptional service from highly-trained and knowledgeable staff and then, of course, there are the views. The vistas of the Franschhoek Valley are exquisite and truly a sight to behold. The food and wine pairings are a delight for all the senses and a reason many guests return, time and again.

The Franschhoek Cellar also prides itself on being able to offer packages for all budgets – the team is happy to sit down and discuss options for individual events or special occasions to ensure that clients remain within budget and still achieve the experience they set out to.

“We have many guests who have held events here, for a second or even third time – this speaks volumes about the service we offer,” says Jerry. “An event that particularly sticks in my memory is an 80th birthday party we threw. When the guest of honour walked into the room and saw what we had prepared for her, she burst into happy tears and was ever so grateful. It was an honour for us too as she is a local who has been very active in our community for well over 40 years; her husband had recently passed away too so it was a special yet very sensitive occasion and we were aware of this and conducted it accordingly.”
If you’re looking for the ideal venue to host your upcoming soiree, look no further than The Franschhoek Cellar – for great service, value for money, and a unique wine and dining experience, all set against the exquisite backdrop of the Franschhoek valley.
