Wine visitors to this year’s CapeWine event will experience and be informed of Pinotage and its uniquely South African wine aspects.
CapeWine is one of South Africa’s most important wine trade shows and Pinotage will be on everyone’s lips.
The Pinotage Association intend to educate and treat visitors to unique and informative tutor tastings during CapeWine2018 which will be held at CTICC from 12-14 September 2018 .
The aim of these tastings is to showcase key aspects of Pinotage to international and local wine industry stakeholders. The older vintages, maturity potential as well as the influence of terroir on Pinotage wine styles will be discussed by distinguished Pinotage winemakers.
Apart from this, Ultra Premium Pinotage wines (R600 and more per bottle) will be showcased to emphasize the exceptional quality of the top end of the Pinotage wines .
Current and past Absa Top 10 Pinotage and Absa Perold Cape Blends winners will also be evaluated and discussed in these tutor tastings.
The Pinotage Tutor Tastings will take place at the Convention Towers which is adjacent to the CTICC and every tasting will have maximum of 20 guests.
