The TOPS at SPAR Wine Show is coming to East London for the first time.
To celebrate, the GO! & Express and TOPS at SPAR have two sets of four tickets for the first evening on Thursday November 7 to give away.
SA’s biggest travelling wine show will be taking place at Hemingways Casino from November 7 to 9, one of seven cities around the country to host the event.
“We are looking forward to bringing an amazing line-up of more than 150 well-known and, as yet, undiscovered gems from the world-renowned Cape winelands for tasting and buying, entertainment at every turn and interactive edutainment in our popular wine theatres,” Wine Show owner and producer Andrew Douglas said.
“The Wine Show is always fun and it offers something for every wine-lover, from novice to aficionado. It’s the place to stock up on old favourites and make new discoveries, which can be shipped free of charge with our complimentary ‘Sip ‘n Ship’ service”. Attendees can look forward to crowd-pleasing events such as the Wine Label Design Awards presented by Rotolabel and a chance to win wine for a year with Stellenbosch Vineyards. Hemingways Casino general manager John McGregor said: “We believe the East London market is hungry – or in this case, thirsty – for a lifestyle-orientated event of this nature and we’re excited to be hosting the Wine Show for the first time.
“This show will give East London residents the chance to experience the unique mix of education and entertainment that makes it a great place to see, taste and learn about the diversity of South Africa’s world-famous wines.”
Tickets are R135 per person for Thursday evening and R185 for Friday and Saturday.
This includes a tasting glass, a show guide, access to wine theatres and unlimited tastings.
