The eighth FNB Limpopo Wine Show takes place in Polokwane on 24 and 25 July and is followed a week later by the second FNB Free State Wine Show in Bloemfontein on 31 July and 1 August. Limpopo and Free State wine lovers have the opportunity to sample some of the country’s top award-winning wines, many of which grace the pages of the country’s most respected wine lists and catalogues. Show visitors can be sure to enjoy recent vintages of well-known wines, discover lesser-known labels and complete the evening with a premium brandy tasting. With over 40 producers exhibiting at both wine shows – Springfield Estate, Oneiric, Welgemeend, Morgenhof, Spier, Groot Constantia, Glen Carlou, Vondeling and Oude Molen Brandy to name a few – wines are also available for purchase via the Shop@Show retail facility which delivers to the purchaser’s home or office. Light meals will be available for sale at the show.
