RMB WINEX 2019: A 20th birthday celebration with the greatest variety of wines under one roof! #RMBWineX #WineX #WineJoziStyle #ChampagneJoziStyle @RMBWineX

RMB WINEX WineJoziStyle

RMB WineX turns a proud 20 this year, taking the annual top spot in wine diaries from Wednesday 30 October to Friday 1 November. Held at the Sandton Convention Centre since its inception in 2000, Jozi’s most ‘talkable’ wine festival will again bring the best of the Cape – and some gems from the international wine scene – to the palates of SA’s largest and most avid wine-loving audience.

The organisers are excited about the exhibitor line-up for this year’s event. This will include at least 30 wineries from the inaugural show plus a large contingent of next-generation winemakers showcasing their wares to the vibrant Gauteng market.

Says Michael Fridjhon, RMB WineX show director: “It’s been an extraordinary two decades, with the current wine industry almost unrecognisably different from the one which filled the Sandton Convention Centre – shortly after it opened its doors for the first time – in October 2000. In that long-forgotten era there were half the number of wineries we have today, but more than a thousand more grape growers. Our vineyard area was 10 percent bigger, but paradoxically total production was 30 percent less. Wine exports were a fraction of what they are today, and buyers wanted the comfort of long-established brand names, rather than the adventurous offerings of newcomers, craft producers and artisan winemakers.”

The RMB Private Bank Tasting Lounge has become a much-anticipated feature at the show over the last five years. Winemakers present half-hour small-group tastings covering a range of fascinating topics. Seats are limited and secured on a first-booked-first-served basis, so guests should reserve their attendance immediately on arrival at the show.

Show visitors won’t go hungry with the array of edibles on show for sampling and sale. French cheese, Morgenster olives, foie gras, West Coast oysters, sushi from the Sushi Bus, Norwegian smoked Salmon, chocolates and nougat will be the order of the day along with the tapas and deli dishes sold at the Mastrantonio Café. The Shop@Show facility, administered by Norman Goodfellows, offers the convenience of a one-stop wine buying service for home delivery in time for the festive season.

    I would love to join you guys because I want to learn more about wine. I don’t think that I know enough.

    Why would I like to go? Surely you mean why would I *not* want to go, right? A #JoziStyle experience is always something to get excited about!

  3. Khanysile Mfaba

    I would love to win a ticket to the #RMBWineX as im a huge wine lover. However, I feel like there’s so much more that I could learn from the show. I’d also like to go there to buy new wines to add onto my collection & show-off when my mom in-law visits us from Kzn in December

      Dine Jozi Style always keeps us in the know for all things food and glam! And I got no doubt that the #RMBWineX is where I should be, winning the tickets would mean a great deal for me, a perfect way to celebrate the end of my final exams (1 November) and what better way than to learn about everything wine with #DineJoziStyle?
