Launched 11 years ago, RMB WineX is the premier wine event in South Africa. There will be some 1 500 wines available for tasting from the 250 Cape Producers exhibiting. The exhibitor line-up this year includes award-winning producers such as Nederburg, Fleur du Cap, Tokara and Saronsberg, while there will also be newcomers such as Bartinney and Kleinood, as well as specialist cellars such as The Winery of Good Hope. The task of engaging with more than 230 wine exhibitors and 1 300 wines at the show is quite daunting, so showgoers will have access to the WineX comprehensive festival guide and list of wines on the website. Visitors can also convert their best WineX tasting experience into a home consumption opportunity through the Shop@Show facility.
