The Wine Show
KZN residents get a taste of SA’s most sought-after wines.
This November, wine-loving Durbanites can look forward to tasting some of SA’s best wines at The Wine Show Durban.  Following on the success of The Wine Show Joburg and PE, the inaugural Durban event will take place from 23 – 25 November at the Durban Exhibition Centre and will see over 60 wineries gathered under one roof. 

“Since launching in 2006, The Wine Show has become known as a show for all South Africans with its unique blend of edutainment, colourful stands, mouth-watering food and a selection of SA’s finest wineries. The relaxed atmosphere allows wine-lovers the opportunity to hear about the stories behind their favourite wines, giving them a new appreciation for the hard work and passion involved in winemaking,” says John Woodward, Director of The Wine Show.

In addition to sampling the wines on offer, as part of the entrance fee visitors can take part in interactive wine theatre sessions to learn more about the different wines, directly from the people who make them. For those wanting to do their bit for charity, the latest Wine Laid Bare calendar will be available to purchase for R100 with all proceeds going to CANSA. Launched in 2009, The Wine Laid Bare photographic competition has received exceptional support from the public and is now in its fourth year. 

Confirmed exhibitors at The Wine Show Durban include Bonnievale, Avontuur, Blaauwklippen, Orange River Cellars, Bosman, Domaine des Dieux, Winery of Good Hope and Simonsig.

Tickets are available in advance through Computicket for R85 per person, at the door for R95 and weekend passes are R160 per person.
