A host of different local winemakers will be showcased this year at The TOPS at SPAR Wine Show– the fastest-growing national wine exhibition that returns to Jo’burg for its 10th consecutive time− between 7th and 9th May at the Sandton Convention Centre. Eagles’ Nest from the Constantia Valley is one of the boutique wineries that will make an appearance. Winemaker, Stuart Botha, gives us some insight into their unique terroir (and more) that has helped them win numerous accolades and awards for their Merlot, Viognier and Shiraz wines.
The TOPS at SPAR Wine Show was launched in 2006 by John and Clare Woodward and has since grown to become arguably South Africa’s fastest-growing consumer wine exhibition. Four events are now held annually in Johannesburg (10th show), Durban (4th show), Nelspruit (2nd show) and PE (6th show) between May and August. Besides its diversity of quality wines to try and buy direct from the exhibitors, seasoned wine connoisseurs as well as up-and-coming wine fans are engaged with its fun, edu-tainment format that includes the Wine Extra Theatre, pop-up Bubbly Bar, street performers and modern violinist. In 2015, TOPS at SPAR Bierfest’s owners, Andrew Douglas and Brett Archibald, acquired a major stake in the business, giving it a significant boost with respect to event production and regional marketing.
