Standard Bank WineX

October 25, 2023 - October 27, 2023

Standard Bank WineX

Standard Bank Private will be the title sponsor of this year’s prestigious WineX wine festival to be held in Johannesburg in October. Attendees can look forward to three evenings filled with wine tastings and engaging interactions with acclaimed winemakers, all set against the backdrop of the finest offerings from the Cape region. The event stands as the largest and most vibrant wine extravaganza in the Southern Hemisphere, fostering new stories and unforgettable memories for like-minded wine enthusiasts.

The WineX story is as rich as the cultural heritage it celebrates. It commenced nearly half a century ago and has since drawn a wine-savvy audience of up to 10 000 participants in Gauteng, with regional exhibitions hosted across the nation.

During the event, attendees can savour wines, champagnes, Cap Classiques, ports and pot-still brandies from more than 150 exhibitors, showcasing the crème de la crème of the South African wine scene. In addition, there will be specialty meats, olives, cheeses and chocolates, allowing wine enthusiasts to pause between tastings and enjoy a light meal or a wholesome snack. The extensive lineup includes over 800 wines, primarily sourced from the Cape, complemented by a selection of international wines and champagnes.

WineX Show Director Michael Fridjhon is delighted with this new partnership, uniting South Africa’s iconic wine show with Africa’s premier Private Bank.

Recognizing the significance of skills development in the hospitality sector, Standard Bank Private, in collaboration with WineX, will sponsor a specialized training program through the Cape Wine Academy. This program aims to transform industry servers into proficient wine waiters or sommeliers, promoting inclusivity within the local wine industry. By investing in this initiative, Standard Bank Private aims to empower individuals to advance their careers and contribute to the vibrant tapestry of Africa’s wine and culinary scene.

For those seeking to explore more vinous treasures, consumers are encouraged to join the Standard Bank UCount Wine of the Month Club. Here, local connoisseurs curate the finest South African wines at affordable prices. Reward members can shop online at the Wine of the Month Club using their personal credit or cheque cards, earning 2% back in reward points. For further details, visit ucount.standardbank.co.za.
