{news} LIST OF AWARDS: Book your tickets now for the all-popular Trophy Wine Show public tastings in June!

June 12, 2024

The Trophy Wine Show brought to you by Investec once again looks forward to hosting the single-night 2024 Public Tastings in Sandton and Cape Town, which follow the announcement of the 2024 winners on 4 June. Wine lovers will find no less than 150 wines of distinction – silver, gold and trophy winners, all on show for toasting, tasting and deliberating, as well as for purchase through specialist wine retailer, Port2Port.

Highlights are always the Best White and Best Red Wines of Show, the International Judges’ trophy winner, Discovery of the Show (best value wine) and Best Premium Wine with the medallists of the Most Successful Producer claiming the limelight. In addition to the host of category winners, museum class vintages (at least four years old for white wines, eight years for red and sparkling) will be available for tasting. Patrons will enjoy the new releases from many favourites, but can also expect to meet some lesser-known cellars.
