ShenFM lined up for The Summer Wines Festival


The Summer Wines Festival is back for another outing and this year takes place at Country Grand in Franschhoek on Saturday, March 4 from 11:00 to 16:00 followed by an afterparty with a wine and cocktail bar and live music.
Estates that will be showcasing their favourite summer wines include Anthonij Rupert Wines, Boekenhoutskloof, Haute Cabriere, Holden Manz, Le Motte, Leopard’s Leap, Lynx Wines, Mont Rochelle, Nederburg, Rupert & Rothschild, Terra Del Capo and Warwick.
Apart from the opportunity to taste a range of wines and cap classiques from the 13 different producers, festival-goers will also be able to purchase a range of food offerings from the Country Grand menu, including salads, pizzas, pastas and burgers, and chill out to live music from the very popular and much in-demand ShenFM.
Ahead of the festival we asked him a few questions.
What can visitors to the Summer Wines Festival expect from your set?
Imagine music on a beach at sunset. It’s an eclectic mix of beats, uptempo, yet still peaceful, dance-able, but not overpowering. Shen’s original remixes of your favourite songs in afro and tropical house feels.
What’s on your playlist right now?
I’ve created some really cool remixes and mashups never heard before, from Due Lipa mixing into tropical house remixes of Bob Marley, to hip hop versions of Wonderwall and African-infused mixes of John Mayer.
What is the one song that best sums up summer for you?
Shen’s remix of Jammin’ by Bob Marley
What is your favourite summer wine or cocktail?
Nothing better than a chilled rosé, so a glass or two of La Motte’s 2022 Vin de Joie Rosé or the Holden Manz Rothko Rosé for me please.
And while the wine tastings closes at 16:00, the wine bar will stay open ‘till late so that guests can watch the sun go down while sipping on a cocktail and chilling to some relaxed vibes from ShenFM.
The dress theme is ‘All White in Country Chic’.
Tickets for the Summer Wines Festival cost R280pp and include a souvenir glass and a tasting from each winery.
