Get up close and personal with the winemaking team in the cellar at Grande Provence Heritage Wine Estate and try your hand at blending your very own signature wine.


Situated in the heart of the picture perfect Franschhoek Valley, Grande Provence offers small groups of adventurous wine explorers an exclusive peak into wine making complete with a hands-on blending experience.


Carefully guided by Grande Provence wine ambassadors, participants in the hour-long blending session create their own unique blends from three different wine varieties. This educational blending experience is a perfect way to learn how the flavour profiles of different varieties combine to lend a unique character to the wine and what skill and knowledge is required to create a truly great blend.


Once participants are happy with their personalised blend, the wine is sealed and can be taken home as a memento of an unforgettable experience. Perfect for friends and family, the wine blending experience at Grande Provence is also an excellent team building exercise.


At R725 per person including a wine tasting and lunch, these blending sessions in the cellar are a great winter winelands experience. If you prefer more intense coaching in the art of blending by Grande Provence’s winemaker, the cost per person is R1 200 per person including the wine tasting and lunch. For bookings and additional information call (021) 876 8600, e-mail or visit
