An upgraded RMB Winex Cape Town 2010 opens on 19 August for two nights at the Cape Town International Convention Center.
The difference in this year’s show is explained by international wine judge and show founder, Michael Fridjhon.
The reason for hosting a show of this kind – and the reason that Rand Merchant Bank has been its headline sponsor since its inception – is to put the country’s finest producers and the region’s true wine enthusiasts into the same space. By reducing the number of evenings at which the winemakers are required be in attendance we make it possible for them to be present for the entire show. This in turn means that we’ve narrowed the focus by creating an environment in which wine consumers can actually engage with the people who make the wines. Obviously this means we’ve had to restrict the number of exhibitors as well as the number of visitors – all in order to ensure that the wine enthusiasts get quality time with quality producers.
Shop@Show will still be available so that visitors can stock up on exhibitor wines at competitive prices.
