Enjoy the TOPS at SPAR Soweto Wine & Lifestyle Festival VIP-Style

Tuesday, 3 September, 2013
It's time to sniff, swirl and spit (or not) at the 9th annual TOPS at SPAR Soweto Wine Festival, in association with Food Network and Travel Channel, which takes place from 5TH to 7TH September. And this time you can do it in true style.
This year, for the first time in the eight-year history of the festival, a hospitality programme has been opened to the corporate market and the public. Businesses have the chance to entertain and spoil their clients with a contemporary, classy, and sassy wine bar, a lounge with see-through roof, and a dining hall that will boast live cooking for a five-course meal and wine pairing.

Wine barrels, glass-top cocktail tables, deep velvet chairs and leather couches will greet guests who will be wowed by the gorgeous Spanish style, “tapas” and “wine” bar styled cocktail and lounge bar that is set up inside the marquee and guest area.

Super Chef Nigel Crowe has created a fantastic menu that will be prepared live. Nigel has worked locally and abroad in hotels, a la carte restaurants and the catering industry allowing him great versatility. As the chief executive and Head Chef of the well-known Season to Taste Company, Crowe will add his unique style and flair to the occasion.

Each of the five courses will be complemented by a delicious wine. Expect food theatre mixed with education – because the food is all prepared live there is interaction with the chef as well as with a sommelier. These sommeliers have all passed through the Cape Wine Academy and are graduates of the Soweto-based Sommelier project run in partnership with the Department of South African Tourism recently.

To top it all off is some funky entertainment courtesy of exceptional performer Vusi Nova and African gyspy rocker Nancy G.

Tickets cost R1, 748 per person, or enjoy all three nights at a discounted price.
