SA’s largest travelling wine show pops the cork in PE

by | Jul 25, 2019 | News

It’s going to be a WINEderful weekend in Port Elizabeth, with the Windy City welcoming the TOPS at SPAR Wine Show, the country’s biggest and boldest travelling wine show, today (25 July). The show takes centre stage at The Boardwalk until Saturday.

Owner of the TOPS at SPAR Wine Show Andrew Douglas shares six tips for getting the most of your TOPS at SPAR Wine Show experience:

  1. “Drink wine but stay fine” (#DrinkSmart)! There are as many varieties of safe driving options as there are cultivars, and TOPS at SPAR Wine Show partner Goodfella’s offers safe, convenient and affordable choices – so pre-book and stay safe!
  2. Budget-beater: If you’re on a budget, your best bet is to book for the reduced-price tickets on Thursday evening and Saturday afternoon. At R135 per person, it’s the best value you’ll find, with all the full ticket price benefits (tasting glass, show guide, access to wine theatres and unlimited tastings).
  3. Insider’s Tip: Book the Couples Combo, which will cost you just R385 for an experience valued at R570. You’ll get two general admission tickets, two tasting glasses, a show guide, access to the wine theatres, unlimited tastings and a six-pack of wine glasses courtesy of Core Catering. Alternatively, a General Admission ticket is R185 or go all-out and get the VIP experience for R495 per person (valued at R870, it’s WINEderful value!).
  4. Remember the ‘Sip & Ship’ service as you wind your way around the show – no need to schlep boxes of wine around or try and find your favourite stands at the end of the night; simply place your order, pay cellar door prices, and get free and reliable delivery straight to your door. Best of all there’s no limit to the number of cases you can have shipped to your soon-to-be-bursting cellar.
  5. Don’t miss the opportunity to cast your ‘People’s Choice Award’ vote for your favourite wine from a selection of 10 finalists in the Wine Label Design Awards presented by Rotolabel, and put yourself in the running to win one of the fabulous displayed wines at the end of the tour.
  6. Get a mouthful of wine knowledge with some edutainment in the two wine theatres – there’s plenty to pique your interest:
