THIS July the annual Tops at Spar Wine Show returns to Port Elizabeth for the sixth consecutive time.

Visitors to this popular event held at the Boardwalk Convention Centre – it sold out last year – are in for a fun-filled line-up of fine wine, entertainment and general merriment. Doors open at 5pm on July 30 and will close at 21:00 on August 1.

Part of the national wine tour’s 10th anniversary celebrations, the PE event follows on from its success in Johannesburg and Durban, which took place in May and June respectively.

Buoyed by new owners – of lifestyle event Tops at Spar Bierfest fame – this year’s show sees décor and design get all dressed-up, while impromptu performance acts including Hezron Chetty, will delight visitors. There’s also a fancy Bubbly Bar centre-piece which serves some of the finest fizz in South Africa.

Swing by after work to try and buy your favourite, or even a few new, South African fine wines directly from the estates. Or make a weekend of it with a 3-day pass and take your time to taste plenty of wines, paired with a variety of light bites and catch a show at The Wine Extra Theatre: a line-up of interactive food and wine edu-tainment hosted by industry gurus and popular personalities.

Tickets can be purchased for R100 from or at the door for R120. It includes a crystal tasting glass, all tastings, access to The Wine Extra Theatre and a map to help navigate the show. Weekend passes for R180 are also available.


Five lucky readers can each win a double ticket to the annual Tops at Spar Wine Show.
