Juliet Cullinan Standard Bank Wine Festival
on the 12th and 13th July 2016 at Summer Place, Hyde Park
Time to toast South Africa´s most prestigious, longest running, oenophile gathering as the Juliet Cullinan Standard Bank Wine Fes㌀ val returns to Summer Place on July 12 and 13 for the 26th year.
Our focus this year is "Celebrating the Art of the Cape Wine" ‐ we bring you more than handpicked, talented winemakers who will showcase their best vintages, we showcase wine making as an art form, highlighting Cape fauna and flora in each wine region. Cape Town based, Johan De Lange uses red wine as a water colour medium to capture botanical detail with the precision and care adopted by winemakers for their award‐winning vintages. We find ourselves appreciating his delicate designs of fynbos, proteas, sunbirds, aloes and
springbok, with as much gratification as the aroma of a beautifully crafted wine.
We encourage you to appreciate the nose and palate of a wine as you may a rare artwork seeking to find the bouquet and flavours peculiar to each region. Juliet Cullinan created the world´s first vineyard street views with Google in 2011 and you can experience the world´s first 3D vineyard footage at the festival. We explore the appreciation of art through the senses using sight, smell and taste, looking at wine faults and leting you discover how the taste of wine changes on your palate depending on the music with which it is paired.
From everyday family gatherings through to collectable assets, wine can play an integral part in our lives." After 9 years, Makro continue to offer the eagerly awaited "Sip & Shop" and you can purchase wine in SA Rands and have them delivered to the UK or Europe through Sawinesonline.
South African‐born Nomaza Nongqunga Coupez founder of Undiscovered Canvas exhibits exclusive local artworks that can be bought in Rands and delivered locally or abroad.
The distinctive brand Jenna Clifford purveyors of fine diamond jewellery, bespoke engagement rings and heirloom pieces will be displaying their home décor range.
Cape Wine Masters will host tutored Master classes and Jean‐Vincent Ridon´s South African Wine Tasting Championships will test your tasting ability rewarding winners a place in the team for the World Wine Tasting Championship. The Juliet Cullinan Standard Bank Wine Festival provides the ideal forum for interaction between wine and art aficionados over a glass of wine.
All these new factors promise to make our magnificent festival, enhanced by Standard Bank´s sponsorship for the past 16 years, our best so far. We are delighted to share our love of "The Arts" with you.
