The 10th Annual Mpumalanga Wine Show is back at the Emnotweni Arena on Friday and Saturday 5th and 6th of April. To celebrate its 10th Anniversary, this ground-breaking wine show is sporting a fresh new look, with a bold and contemporary coral sun on a dramatic deep purple background, drawn from the surrounding bushveld colours and representing the Sunshine Province.

Wine lovers from Nelspruit, White River and as far East as Maputo are invited to celebrate a decade of fine wines, new discoveries and iconic classics brought to the Lowveld.   Almost 40 exhibitors will present a fabulous line-up of an estimated 250 wines reflecting the landscape of buoyant bubblies, crisp whites, robust reds and delicious desserts - with select ‘foodies’ presenting wine-complementing fare. 

Early Bird tickets cost R180 via until Sunday 31 March. Thereafter and at the door, tickets cost R200 per person. Emnotweni Rewards Card holders are entitled to instant discounts, from 10% upwards.
