October 24 @ 5:00 pm - October 26 @ 9:00 pm
RMB WineX takes place from 24 to 26 October at the Sandton Convention Centre. SA’s Must-Attend wine event and premier consumer wine show of 19 years will again bring an exceptional line-up of premium wine brands to the heart of Jozi: it’s Sandtonbosch, really. Stylistas, trendsetters and the wine curious should plan to pamper their palates with all that is new and exciting at the single largest gathering of the country’s top producers and influencers.
Beautiful stands, eye-candy labels, award-winning wines: make the most of your WineX experience – hit the RMB Private Bank Tasting Lounge for exclusive time with some of the country’s leading winemakers, dip into delicious tapas-tastes provided by Mastrantonio, cruise the select food stalls dotted around the room, take your palate to places it’s never been to before. More than a Must-Do event, RMB WineX also provides the opportunity to stock up on Must-Have wines via the Shop@Show facility managed by the neighbourhood’s fine wine retailer Norman Goodfellows.
With over 150 exhibitors and 800 wines on show, the A-list of wineries includes multi-award winning classics Meerlust, Kanonkop, Backsberg, Jordan, Hamilton Russell, Morgenster, Nederburg, Spier, Tokara and Rustenberg – while ‘young gun’ producers Marras, Miles Mossop, Mullineux, Paserene and The Fledge & Co. add the left field element. Explore mindful winemaking with organic wines from Laibach, Avondale and Reyneke and reunite with the long-time favourites of Fleur du Cap and Zonnebloem. This extravaganza will be complemented by the visual feast of Barrel Art and unexpected sculpture. See the full list of exhibitors.
