RMB WineX, SA’s premier wine show launched in 2000, is attended annually by 10 000 Jozi wine lovers representative of the country’s largest and most discerning wine market. The exhibitor profile of around 150 exhibitors comprises big brand names, boutique wineries, wine routes, imported glassware, wine accessories and wine storage systems. Deli or fine foods suitable for wine pairing or associated with the wine industry – i.e. olives and olive oils, specialist meats, oysters, cheeses and nougat – also form part of the line-up. Bespoke winemaker tastings for small groups further enhance the RMB WineX experience and the Shop@Show facility allows wine lovers the opportunity to order their show favourites for home delivery. Sales at the 2017 show of around R4m demonstrate that RMB WineX is a worthwhile shopping opportunity in time for the festive season.
