Lovers of fine things in life will descend to NY 49 Stadium where the Gugulethu Wine Festival will be taking place from tomorrow night until Sunday.

GugsFest host Lungile Mbalo said this three day event will blow “attendees away with a variety of tastes and performances”.

“There will be wines galore and musicians like the Gugulethu Tenors, Vuyo Myoli, Coda Afrika, Zoe Madiga, Messive Muzik and Bambanani Marimba Group who will literally set stage on fire,” explained Lungile.

“”With music at the heart of the festival, the GugsFest is proud to support local talent while profiling the potential of the township,” he added.

A unique and vibrant food, drink and music festival with over 60 wines to taste from some of South Africa’s best loved wine brands, festival goers will be spoilt for choice.

“This is the festival’s fourth year and it is the first time that we are bringing together musical talent coming straight from Gugs” said Lungile .

“We are also proud to be working with some of Gugulethu’s service providers and we hope to build on these relationships for better upcoming festivals” continued Lungile.

Some of the wines that will be showcasing at the festival include include Drostdy-Hof, Two Oceans, Orange River, Slanghoek, Stellenbosch Vineyards and Township Winery owned by township women entrepreneurs.

“We re the first black owned winery in the Western Cape, this is a product of group of female entrepreneurs,” Nomhle Zondani told City Vision last night.

Nomhle said she was looking to forward to showcasing their products to the township market.

She added that Township Winery currently exports its wines to the UK , Germany , Italy and China so far.

“We are still looking for more countries to do business with,” she said.
