It’s time to toast the 27th Juliet Cullinan Standard Bank Wine Festival taking place at Summer Place in Hyde Park on 16 & 17 May.
Uniquely tailored to showcase the industry’s premier names, the festival is the most exclusive, longest running wine event in South Africa.
“Our philosophy has always been to showcase limited quantities of exceptional wines which display a ‘sense of place’. It is a vitrine of the Cape’s finest cellars – handpicked for their quality and distinction. Most have excelled internationally, which accounts for the success and continued popularity of South Africa’s most coveted annual celebration.”
"The industry’s cellar-celebs, bring their latest vintages and special bottles of aged wines and discuss everything from wine evolution to regional differences. 2017 sees us unveiling the wine tasting experience to compare grapes, terroirs and tastes. Our 17-year sponsorship with Standard Bank confirms our commitment to satisfy palates and stimulate debate. We’ve built our reputation on continuity and a commitment to offer an optimum experience for both winery and taster. This year should be our best yet, as small, select boutique wineries present innovative blends in an elegant, convivial setting.”
The Juliet Cullinan Standard Bank Wine Festival is the ideal forum for unsurpassed social interaction between wine aficionados and gifted cellar masters. Life-long friendships are forged. It's a time to taste, experience and interact with great names, or simply learn how to distinguish a Chenin Blanc from a Chardonnay.
