The TOPS at SPAR Wine Show is back in Joburg from Thursday 6 to Saturday 8 June at Montecasino, and you’re invited to taste and explore a ‘Winederland’ of ti(tannic) proportions – and if you get your tickets before Sunday you’ll pay only R92,50!

The show is an opportunity to expand your knowledge of wine in all its glory, with interactive, educational presentations in the #SAWineShowcase Theatre by the much-loved Jon Meinking, a legend in the wine industry, including wines from Signal Gun, Stellenbosch Hills and Cape Chamonix to name a few. 

The SPAR Group’s private label, Olive Brook, will be showcasing their two new ranges, the Everyday and Terroir Selection, in a talk on ‘Complex but not Confusing’. In addition to this, the show will be bustling with exciting activities, as the Wine Label Design Awards presented by Rotolabel celebrate the art of ‘putting a face to the taste’, while the ‘Search for a Supertaster’ sends visitors (from casual wine lovers to passionate aficionados) on a tasting challenge in the South African Wine Tasting Championships – with the winning taster set to join the SA Wine Tasting Champs on their upcoming overseas trip. 

Proving that “local is lekker,” a selection of estates from several wine-producing regions will be taking part in the show, some of which are exhibiting for the first time. These include Cape Point Vineyards, Stellenbosch Hills, Spier,  South Hill and Waverley Hills to name a few. Comments Debbie Combrink, CEO of the TOPS at SPAR Wine Show, “We welcome back farms such as Tokara, Hermanuspietersfontein, Perdeberg, Stellenbosch Vineyards and Babylonstoren – and many more. Expanding on last year’s boutique wine offering, visitors to the show can look forward to 17 producers in this category.”

After Joburg, the TOPS at SPAR Wine Show moves to Cape Town from 11 to 13 July, Port Elizabeth from 25 to 27 July, Pretoria (which is making a welcome return to the tour schedule) from 3 to 5 October, East London (the latest addition to the tour) from 7 to 9 November, and ending off in Nelspruit from 28 to 30 November.
