What We Do

Shades of Grape food and wine art pairings offer guests of the Franschhoek Valley a fusion of our town’s richest features: exceptional cuisine, bountiful vineyards, and a completely unique way to experience wine. Using wine from one of our treasured local farms as an artistic medium, we take guests through a wine painting class while they enjoy a pairing of the featured wines with a series of specially crafted dishes.  In this way, we seek to create for our guests an interactive wining-and-dining experience.


Shades of Grape workshops feature the wines of GlenWood Vineyards, a boutique wine farm located in the heart of the Valley. Our food and wine art pairings are offered as both monthly public events, hosted by the Village Grill & Butcher in Franschhoek, and private events with customized content.
