LIFE'S A CABERNET AT THE GREATEST SHOW UNEARTHED

LIFE'S A CABERNET AT THE GREATEST SHOW UNEARTHED
The TOPS at SPAR Wine Show is back with a bang this May

From Merlot to Malbec & Pinot Noir to Pinotage, the TOPS at SPAR Wine Show presents South Africa's top wine labels all under one roof. Coming back to Johannesburg for its 11th consecutive year, the event engages wine lovers of all ages to test, try and buy the country's best bottles directly from wine producers.

The TOPS at SPAR Wine Show was launched in 2006 and has since grown to become arguably South Afrca's fastest growing consumer wine exhibition. Buoyed by its new owners in 2015, the event now hosts 5 shows around the country in Johannesburg; Durban; Nelspruit; Port Elizabeth and Pretoria between May and November.
Besides its diversity of quality wines to try and buy, seasoned wine connoisseurs as well as up-and-coming wine fans are engaged with its fun, edu-taining format that includes 2 wine theatres.

This year, themed: The Greatest Show Unearthed for 2016, the event will channel a vintage burlesque experience, whilst blending hundreds of fine wine exhibitors, edu-taining activities, food and other festivities between the 12th and 14th May. The highlights that are not to be missed include 2 very popular wine theatres that will be presenting a series of interactive tasting talks that are hosted by industry experts and wine personalities. Performance artists add to the jolly atmosphere whilst visitors are invited to vote for their favourite wine producer in the "People's Choice Awards" and stand a chance of winning wine for a year.

Tickets can be purchased pre-show for R150 each from www.wineshow.co.za or at the door for R170. The price includes a crystal tasting glass, all tastings, and access to both wine theatres and a map to help navigate the show.
