Pic­nic vibe in the mid­dle of win­ter at TOPS at SPAR Wine Show

IF YOU’RE look­ing for live lo­cal mu­sic and a pic­nic vibe in the mid­dle of this win­ter, the TOPS at SPAR Wine Show has you cov­ered.

The show, pre­sented by the Cape Times, is run­ning un­til this Satur­day, so there’s no need to head all the way out to Robert­son with Ex­cel­sior Wines and Viljoens­drift bring­ing their de­light­ful, fruit-for­ward ex­pres­sions to the party.

Perde­berg “The Home of Chenin Blanc” will also be in fine form, show­cas­ing the depth of the Paarl re­gion’s mi­cro-cli­mates along­side Wind­meul Kelder.

If you’re lucky, they might even give you a whiff of their gor­geous Caber­net Franc.

And, if you’re into ro­bust reds, you won’t re­gret a stop by Allesver­loren from the shadow of Kas­teel­berg, in the Swart­land, to try their deeply coloured, pow­er­ful wines that have a con­cen­tra­tion of fruity good­ness.

Even more on the menu, Ses­fik­ile wines will be avail­able to try, hand­crafted by a team of women wine­mak­ers from Worcester.

In ad­di­tion to these ex­cep­tional wines, Die Mas van Kaka­mas will bring the North­ern Cape’s finest brandy to our doorstep. It’s hard to imag­ine they all fit un­der one roof.

Speak­ing of space, there isn’t enough here to ap­pre­ci­ate the be­spoke and bou­tique beau­ties bub­bling up for the oc­ca­sion but some of these names might ring a bell: Jan Harms­gat, Kun­jani, Leipzig Win­ery, Stof­berg Fam­ily Vine­yards, Wind­fall Wine Farm and Seven Oaks, to name but a few.

Tast­ing all of these wines in a Win­ter WINEder­land doesn’t hap­pen ev­ery day, so be sure to take ad­van­tage and join us at Sun Ex­hibits, GrandWest from July 12-14.

Tick­ets can be bought on­line at Quicket, and cost R140.
