Backsberg is thrilled to be taking part in the 18th annual WineX, SA’s premier wine show, which takes place from 24 to 26 October at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg. The show’s audience of 10 000 Jozi wine lovers includes some of the country’s foremost wine critics, allowing exhibitors an excellent opportunity to shine.
Backsberg is one of 150 exhibitors and will be situated at stand N6. Those showing comprise of big brand names, boutique wineries, wine routes, imported glassware, wine accessories and wine storage systems. To complement the wines, a selection of fine foods including cheeses, olives and olive oils, deli foods and specialty meats and other treats will also be on exhibition.
Bespoke winemaker tastings for small groups further enhance the RMB WineX experience and, as such, Backsberg’s winemaker Alicia Rechner will be hosting two private tastings at their stand on Thursday and Friday evening. In her masterclass entitled Roussanne and Beyond: Backsberg’s Flagship Selection, Alicia will be presenting Backsberg’s Family Reserve Range, the Family Reserve White 2018 and the yet-to-be released Family Reserve Red 2016 (a recent trophy winner in the Michelangelo Awards). This is not be missed by those attending!
Of this year’s show, 4th Generation Owner and CEO of Backsberg Simon Back says, “We are enormously proud to be exhibiting among producers of such a high calibre and excited to impress the distinguished audience of WineX.”
Thanks to the team at WineX for once again having us be part this fantastic experience, we look forward to participating in the show for many more years to come.
