Class in a glass at the fine wine show in Joburg

The Sunday Independent - - Up ‘n About - LESEGO MAKGATHO

THE won­der­ful world of wine is for those who crave a bit of magic and plenty of ad­ven­ture, hence tip­plers trick­led down to Mon­te­casino this past week­end for South Africa’s lead­ing wine event – The Tops at Spar Wine Show pre­sented by In­de­pen­dent Me­dia.

Wine lovers took their palates on an ad­ven­ture, sip­ping a range of the finest wines, in­clud­ing brands such as In­fu­sions Tast­ing Lab and Thokozani Wines. Quite a few wine la­bels were also ex­hibit­ing. As wine tast­ing re­quires cheese and crack­ers to cleanse the palate, there were snacks aplenty for the visi­tors walk­ing around and fill­ing up their glasses.

The ex­hi­bi­tion aimed to bring to­gether those in­ter­ested in the lifestyle and eti­quette of wine and was an op­por­tu­nity to taste wines from dif­fer­ent re­gions. The show ended yes­ter­day, but most of the wines are avail­able at Spar.
