Cape Wine is the business showcase of the South African wine industry. Held every two years in the Cape Town Convention Centre, it attracts wine trade professionals and media from across the globe. Presented by Wines of South Africa, it is the most successful international wine trade show in the Southern hemisphere, and probably the most enjoyable wine show in the world.
In 2012 Cape Wine will also feature a parallel event, Vindaba, focusing on South Africa's fabulous wine tourism offering. Vindaba will be the first South African show aimed at promoting South Africa’s fantastic wine tourism offering to the world's travel trade and media. Wine Tourism in South Africa dates back to 1971 when the the Stellenbosch Wine route was first established. Today there are over 20 wine routes, all set in constantly changing but always breathtaking landscapes. Along them you’ll find a plethora of different people, cultures, languages and histories. You’ll find mountains and oceans, distractions for nature lovers and luxury lovers, thrill seekers and relaxation seekers. You’ll find some of the world’s best hotels and guesthouses, spas, golf courses and restaurants. And, of course, hectares of vineyards and hundreds of wineries and estates. Vindaba will include exhibitions, seminars, one-on-one meetings and tailor made pre and post tours to our wine routes – the most beautiful in the world.
Both these shows will be run as eco-friendly, sustainable events.
