This weekend WineStyle Magazine will be throwing a Winter Wine Party at Simon’s in Groot Constantia.

It sounds quite fun, veering away from the traditional (and often intimidating) format of a wine show, towards a more festive ‘party’ environment:

A celebration of food and wine! It’s for people who appreciate good wine, and who like to have fun. Listen to great live music, sample some of the delicious food on sale and maybe buy a bottle or two to enjoy! There will be wines from about 30 estates from all over the wine lands. Experience wines that you have never tasted before. The event is unlike a traditional wine show, and encourages guests and exhibitors to engage, unwind, eat, drink and pick up a few wine tips in the process.

There’s no mention of which wine estates will be taking part, but no doubt there should be quite a bit of variety, and plenty for enthusiasts to sample.

The event runs from 4pm until 10pm today (3 August 2012) and then from 12midday to 9pm tomorrow (4 August 2012).  Tickets cost R100 via Webtickets or R120 at the door (numbers are limited).
