It's one of South Africa's much loved wine events and its back at Suncoast and will be offering the best of South Africa's most loved wines and bubbly. This years theme being WINEderland, will leave visitors spellbound in the magical world of wine where they get the chance to engage directly with their favourite pourformers, be edutaned in the Independent on Saturday Wine Theatre, or sip into something more comfortable in the VIP Lounge.
This year see's a change from the norm with new premium ticket options offered, WINEderland truly offers something to satisfy every palate, including a limited Private Premium Tasting option for experience wine enthusiasts, a double ticket option which includes a set of six Libby wine glasses from Core Catering or the showstopper, an all access option that includes canapes, limited complimentary wine bar, 2018 Platters Guide, access to the VIP lounge as well as a Private Premium Tasting.
To add to that, this year will see the inclusion of a second wine theatre, the #SAwinshowcase theatre presented by Hashtag Radio personality, Jon Meinking. Considered the equivalent of wine speed dating, this intimate experience is perfect for all those wanted to expand their wine horizons and will be presented as a blind tasting, so as to eliminate any bias towards verital, region, farm and price as possible. Much like his radio programme, Jon will endeavour to enlighten to mindset of the traditional wine consumer and hopes they'll be more receptive towards other wine varieties, wine regions and diverse expressions of their usual favourites.
The show offers a lot of interaction this year, giving the visitor a unique experience into the world of wine, where by they can chat to the exhibitors on the various wines on offer, what to pair them with and how to drink them. It's perfect for anyone, whether you're a novice, experience or like me, have no clue at all about wine.
