SA’s oldest wine show, The Mercury Wine Week, turns 40

South Africa’s oldest wine event, the renowned Mercury Wine Week, which takes place this year from Wednesday 29 to Friday 31 August 2018, is celebrating 40 years of migrating the country’s premier wine estates from the Cape to Durban every winter.

To commemorate the milestone, the event which is a highlight on Durban’s winter social calendar, taking place over three evenings offering Durban’s wine- lovers a sampling smorgasbord of over 70 wine estates each showcasing their finest wines, will for the first time take place at Sibaya Casino and Entertainment Kingdom.

The Mercury Wine Week affords Durban’s wine-enthusiasts with the opportunity to meet and mingle with some of the country’s leading wine-makers from the Cape winelands’ finest red, white, rosé and sparkling wine estates, to sample the country’s finest blends.

To further celebrate the event’s 40th anniversary, a distinctive Bubbly area will feature the large and growing number of SA’s Méthode Cap Classique estates and their wide variety of sparkling wines.

To ensure the safety of visitors, Mercury Wine Week has partnered with internationally renowned transportation network company Taxify, to offer discounted rates to and from the event.

Be sure to be a part of Durban’s premier winter wine event by booking your tickets online from iTickets at R120 or at the door at R140. The price includes a tasting glass and unlimited wine tasting.
