Taste over 1200 wines at the RMB WineX Cape Town – 19 & 20th August

RMB WineX Cape Town – now in its eighth year – will open at the CTICC on 19 August as a completely different show. Always the largest and most important premium consumer wine event in the Western Cape, RMB WineX will be raising an already elevated bar. Aiming for quality rather than quantity, the organisers have amended the show format cutting it back to a two evening event, instead of the usual three night rolling party.

“The reason for hosting a show of this kind – and the reason that Rand Merchant Bank has been its headline sponsor since its inception – is to put the country’s finest producers and the region’s true wine enthusiasts into the same space,” said show founder and international wine judge Michael Fridjhon. “By reducing the number of evenings at which the winemakers are required be in attendance we make it possible for them to be present for the entire show. This in turn means that we’ve narrowed the focus by creating an environment in which wine consumers can actually engage with the people who make the wines. Obviously this means we’ve had to restrict the number of exhibitors as well as the number of visitors – all in order to ensure that the wine enthusiasts get quality time with quality producers.”

As in the past, WineX visitors can stock up on exhibitor wines at competitive prices via Shop@Show.  For those too busy to make it to the wine farms, this facility offers a convenient one-stop-shop alternative and includes a delivery to your door.   The annual Best Wines on Show ballot, with great prizes attached, adds to the fun of a wonderful wine evening in the city.
