For the Love of Wine

This weekend sees the Mercury Wine Week grace the Greyville Racecourse with hundreds of the world’s best Reds, Whites, Rose’s and Sparkling Wines. We offer a sneak peek into what to look forward to, check it out…

This August Southern Africa’s greatest wine estates return to Durban, KZN, when the Mercury Wine Week opens its doors for the 38th consecutive year.

From August 24 – 26 traders, connoisseurs and wine lovers are given the chance to meet with the men and women who create our finest blends, sampling hundreds of reds, whites, rosés and sparkling wines.

Held at the Greyville Racecourse for the first time, the Mercury Wine Week takes the spirit of tasting a step further with the Wine Tasting Theatre offering visitors the added benefit of meeting their favorite estates in a private setting of 30 persons only.

Connoisseurs are invited to an intimate sampling experience at the Wine Tasting Theatre, where great estates present their best to a setting of 30 persons only. One show ticket includes free entrance, but limited seats means quick thinking. Reservations are on a first come first serve basis.

Wednesday 24th August:  5.30pm – 8.30pm

Thursday 25th August: 5.30pm – 8.30pm

Friday 26th August: 5.30pm – 8.30pm
