Tops@SPAR Show in Cape Town at Grand West


30 July 2018

Grand West was again the home to the TOPS at Spar Wine Show in Cape Town - this time held in winter - and inside!

It was a Winter Winederland, with fake snow and ice queens on show.  I attended a VIP Tasting presented by Johan van Dyk of Perdeberg, and was very impressed to see their Rex Equus wine - a stunning label - adorned with Double Golds from Michelangelo.
Many of the wines represented at the show were from black-owned brands - good to see them being showcased, from Sesfikile to Koni to Libby's Price and more.
This show is popular with the new wine explorer, so the Stellenbosch Vineyards Infusions is always a hit - and this show was no exception.  
Jon Meinking also showcased wines in his Theatre - where you could check your palate in a blind tasting!

The next and last show for 2018 is in Nelspruit in Nov - so if you are in the Mpumalanga area - make your way down there.
