The 28th Juliet Cullinan Standard Bank Wine Festival will be held in the Hyde Park Shopping Centre, Johannesburg, on June 5 and 6, from 5pm to 9pm on both days.
“The great winemakers weaved their magic through our history before handing over to their children who are just as passionate, yet also dynamic, and keen to innovate on the traditions they have inherited,” explains Cullinan. “They have changed winemaking, grape varieties, blends and tastes. They are not better than their forefathers, they are different! They have introduced wines for the millennial taster with fruit, flavour and instagram sensation.
“There is a beautiful bond in the way the festival connects people. The seed of this link comes from the grapes first touched by the hands of the cellarmaster before blending and bottling. It is my role as hostess at the festival to introduce the latest releases to the many guests who attend and to share with them the beauty and elegance of these finely crafted wines.”
Standard Bank’s 18-year sponsorship of the festival enables the organisers to satisfy palates, stimulate debate and provide an optimum experience for both winery and taster. It’s what the festival’s reputation is built on.
Individual winemakers who share their knowledge and enthusiasm enliven the festival every year. Visitors to the festival cherish the friendships, interaction and loyalty shared in the presence of superior wines. The joy of wine tasting is the joy of discovery!
Each year the Juliet Cullinan Wine Festival aims higher and 2018 promises to be its best festival yet, as hand-picked boutique wineries and cellar-celebs share their limited production labels and present innovative blends.
