RMB WineX Turns 20
23 August 2019
We cannot stress enough how even the anticipation of the RMB WineX makes us SO HAPPY! Even more, the reason to click our glasses and cheers as it’s their 20th birthday celebration.
RMB WineX turns a proud 20 this year, taking the annual top spot in any Likers wine diary. Held at the Sandton Convention Centre since its inception in 2000, Jozi’s most ‘talkable’ wine festival will again bring the best of the Cape – and some gems from the international wine scene – to the palates of SA’s largest and most avid wine-loving audience.

The organisers are excited about the exhibitor line-up for this year’s event. This will include at least 30 wineries from the inaugural show plus a large contingent of next-generation winemakers showcasing their wares to the vibrant Gauteng market.
The RMB Private Bank Tasting Lounge has become a much-anticipated feature at the show over the last five years. Winemakers present half-hour small-group tastings covering a range of fascinating topics. Seats are limited and secured on a first-booked-first-served basis, so guests should reserve their attendance immediately on arrival at the show.
Show visitors won’t go hungry with the array of edibles on show for sampling and sale. French cheese, Morgenster olives, foie gras, West Coast oysters, sushi from the Sushi Bus, Norwegian smoked Salmon, chocolates, and nougat will be the order of the day along with the tapas and deli dishes sold at the Mastrantonio Café. The Shop@Show facility, administered by Norman Goodfellows, offers the convenience of a one-stop wine buying service for home delivery in time for the festive season.
