Porcupine Ridge from Boekenhoutskloof in Franschhoek is proud to sponsor the Franschhoek Literary Festival.

Porcupine Ridge wines were launched in 1996 and have grown to be one of the most recognised wine brands in South Africa. Being located in the Franschhoek valley, Porcupine Ridge has always taken a keen interest in the development of the town, and so it made perfect sense to support the Franschhoek Literary Festival when the opportunity arose.

The Franschhoek Literary Festival (FLF) has gained a worldwide reputation as a respected celebration of books and writers, with a focus on promoting South African writing and reading, while exposing book lovers to some of their favourite international authors.

Harvesting onions
When onions start to mature, the tops (foliage) become yellow and begin to fall over. At that point, bend the tops down or even stomp on them to speed the final ripening process. Loosen the soil around the bulbs to encourage drying. Be sure to harvest in late summer, before cool weather.
