Porrón at Franschhoek Uncorked

One of the old Spanish traditions is drinking from a 'Porrón' - a glass vessel not dissimilar to a wine decanter, except that it has a spout on one side. At a meal it was customary not drink out of glasses, but instead to share their wine from the porrón (see video clip).

At this year's Franschhoek Uncorked Festival, Lynx Wines will be demonstrating the art of drinking out of a porrón; and you too, can be part of it.

At Lynx our theme is once again Spanish Fiesta (I grew up in Spain) and we will have tapas, live Spanish guitar, awesome wines and porrón competitions. Prove you can do it too, and you could win your own cheeky t-shirt!

Dates are 10 and 11 October 2009. R60 buys you a festival passport with which you can visit all participating wineries and sample their wines. A bus service will take you from farm to farm.
