Extra session added to TOPS at Spar Wine Show in PE

TOPS at SPAR Wine Show Tailors the Show for Port Elizabeth!

It seems every wine lover in Port Elizabeth is determined not to miss the better-than-ever three-day TOPS at SPAR Wine Show at Boardwalk Casino from 25 to 27 July. This means the organisers have had to do some fancy footwork to make sure everyone gets the chance to experience this wine calendar highlight.

Saturday 27 July has been split into two sessions – the first from 2pm to 5pm and the second from 6pm to 9pm. The Thursday and Friday times remain the same as the rest of the tour – open from 5pm to 9pm.

“The decision to trial a split of the Saturday session is a direct result of feedback we have received from the venue, our sponsors and exhibitors after 4 consecutive years reaching maximum capacity on Saturday evening in PE. By creating 2 sessions we are hopeful we can reduce volumes at peak times but hopefully accommodate more guests on Saturday overall. This way we believe we can deliver a better customer and exhibitor experience for all involved.”

The show, which features upwards of 60 exhibitors, will have something for every wine lover from novice to aficionado. Crowd-pleasing attractions include two interactive wine theatres, a VIP food and wine pairing VIP experience brought to you by Vinesse Wines and presented by the SA Sommeliers Association, a chance to win wine for a year courtesy of Stellenbosch Vineyards, and free shipping on all cases bought with the complimentary ‘Sip ‘n Ship’ service.

After delighting palates in PE, the TOPS at SPAR Wine Show goes to Pretoria from 3 to 5 October, East London from 7 to 9 November, and ends off in Nelspruit from 28 to 30 November.
