For the fourth consecutive year, residents of Port Elizabeth will have the Winelands on their doorstep when The Wine Show comes to town. The Wine Show Nelson Mandela Bay takes place from 28 – 30 June at the brand new Boardwalk Convention Centre and will give visitors the opportunity to sample wines from a variety of sought-after South African estates.
“Everyone’s welcome at The Wine Show,” says John Woodward, Director of The Wine Show. “We believe that this is the ideal platform for novices to begin their wine education whilst the connoisseurs expand on their knowledge.” Free Wine Extra Theatre sessions throughout the weekend offer visitors a chance to take part in tutored tastings and are a perfect example of The Wine Show’s principle of edutainment. Combined with colourful stands, mouth-watering food and SA’s finest wineries such as Blaauwklippen Vineyards, Morgenster Estate, Gabrielskloof and Simonsig, this is an event not to be missed.
With so many wines on show, visitors are sure to make new discoveries and stock up on much-loved favourites. For those who plan on taking advantage of having hundreds of SA’s favourite wines under one roof, the Dawn Wing “Sip ‘n Ship” service is a non-negotiable. Simply drop off your purchases and collect them on your way out, or arrange for the wines to be couriered directly to your door. Good Fellas drivers will also be on stand-by for the last three hours of each show day offering complimentary service on a first come first served basis.
Tickets are available in advance through Computicket for R80 or R90 at the door. Group bookings of 10 or more will qualify for the discounted rate of R80 per person. This includes a crystal tasting glass, all tastings, access to the Wine Extra Theatre and a map to help you navigate the show. Weekend passes are R150 per person.
