Juliet Cullinan’s passion – a magical and nuanced enthusiasm that fuels her pursuit of the finest wineries – instils in winemakers and tasters alike, the desire to participate in her festivals, synonymous with quality and excellence.
Aimed at being a vitrine of the Cape’s finest vintages, each handpicked winery, at the Juliet Cullinan Standard Bank Wine Festival, tells a tale of terroir and taste in an engaging, yet warm and convivial atmosphere. Oenophiles return year after year to chat to winemakers, discover their secrets, and enjoy the art of the fermented grape with a glass of professional expertise.
By giving talented winemakers a platform, she facilitates interaction between keen wine lovers and cellar masters as she raises a glass to skillfully crafted wines, boutique brands, estates and award winning labels. Small and select, the festival presents quality wines in an elegant setting. “We tailor our exhibitor’s list to allow our guests to taste the finest and to meet and bond with the winemakers.”
“Our success comes from offering unique wineries that have excelled internationally. Showcasing wines with a ‘sense of place’ is our philosophy.”
“I am grateful to Standard Bank for their 18-year sponsorship that has allowed us to promote one of South Africa’s greatest assets and reach new markets.”
“Our commitment to offering the best experience for small, elite boutique wineries and tasters alike will hopefully ensure the continued popularity of South Africa’s prestigious and longest running wine event. Cheers!”
