Wine lovers, the days of schlepping to the winelands to taste premium wine are long gone.Tuning the Vine brings wine-tasting to the streets of the Mother City, so that you can savour wines from Stellies, Franschhoek, Robertson or the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley in and around the CBD, easily hopping from one venue to the next.
These innercity wine-tasting sessions happen on the second Wednesday of the month, namely 11 October, 8 November and 13 December 2017.
How it works
Head to a Ticket Station with your ticket in hand (or on your phone), and pick up a map, a glass and a wristband (which gets you into all the participating venues to experience the 25 to 40 wines on show). Some of the venues for October 2017 include: 91 Loop, Burger & Lobster, HQ, The Station on Bree, Arcade, Mink & Trout, Cabrón Taco Bar, The Odyssey, and Craft Burger Bar.
If you’re looking for a quick bite in between tastings, participating venues will be serving a variety of tasty nibbles. Or, if you’d prefer to have a leisurely meal after you’ve done your tastings, most venues will be open for late dinner, selling participating wineries’ wines by the glass.
