Monthly Workshops

Shades of Grape holds a monthly food and wine art pairing at Franschhoek’s Village Grill & Butcher featuring wines from the town’s own GlenWood Vineyards. These afternoon events feature:

WINE PAINTING INSTRUCTION An instructor will guide the group through an introductory level class in watercolor technique using GlenWood wines as the medium and with a new theme each month. No prior artistic experience is required.

FOOD & WINE PAIRING While they paint, guests will have a chance to experience a selection of the featured wines in a more traditional way as they partake of pairings with five different dishes specially crafted by the Village Grill.

The workshops last 2-3 hours, but guests are welcome to enjoy the rest of the afternoon on site, finishing their paintings or taking in the beautiful garden.  Take a peek at our gallery to see what these sessions are about.

Limited spots are available so advanced booking is essential.  Have a browse at our upcoming workshops and book now!
