The annual Juliet Cullinan Standard Bank Wine Festival will be hosted at Summer Place on 16 and 17 May. It is South Africa’s longest running, most elite wine show and has enjoyed Standard Bank sponsorship for the past 17 years. The festival brings top talent to the attention of connoisseurs.

You will discover nuances in the MCC – Méthode Cap Classique bubblies from Haute Cabrière, Simonsig or Charles Fox.
Traditional values continue to bolster the festival with Bouchard Finlayson, Bosman Family Vineyards, Creation, Dewetshof, Avondale, KWV, Ormonde, Raka, Thelema, Vrede en Lust, Constantia Glen, Charles Fox, De Grendel, Doolhof, Drift Farm, Idiom, Mont du Toit, Journeys End, Alto, Stellenzicht, and Neethlingshof, La Motte, Hillcrest, Zevenwacht, and Vondeling, still party stalwarts.
