Discover the Art of Wine at the 12th Soweto Wine & Lifestyle Festival.
– 3-5 March 2017 at the Soweto Theatre
Three days of wine, food and music with a touch of class and culture in the heart of Soweto.This festival is the hub for the country’s finest innovators, bringing together winemakers, artisan chefs, designers, crafters and entrepreneurs in a 3-day cultural experience, unique to Soweto.
The festival was originally designed to bring Cape wines into Johannesburg’s largest township, Soweto, which is known for its trendsetting values and people, to expose this magnificent movement to the country’s oldest unique wine etiquettes and cultures. Over this period, the festival has expanded,becoming the most wonderfully integrated event in Johannesburg, where the only colours you see are red, white or rose.
Says the Honourable Minister of Tourism, Derek Hanekom, following his visit to last festival,“This festival epitomises innovation and transcends stereotypes. It’s about great South African food, wine and travel, brought alive in Soweto. This festival has become a must-do event on the tourism calendar in Johannesburg. ”
