Soweto Wine and Lifestyle Festival to be held in March 2017


The Soweto Wine and Lifestyle Festival – founded by Mnikelo Mangciphu, owner of the Morara Wine and Spirit Emporium and Cape Wine Master, Marilyn Cooper – will take place from 3-5 March 2017 at its new venue, the Soweto Theatre.
Now in its 12th year, the festival will showcase the best, and emerging, South African wines, foods, travel, music and artisanal merchandise.
The festival is well-known around the world as having transformed the South African wine industry, removing old customs, and developing a large discerning, well-educated, wine-drinking culture over the past decade.

New additions to the festival

Moving the festival into its new slot in the summer season is granting the organisers carte blanche to create a new wave wine revolution, introducing day-time wine and food tastings, new visual delights, VIP spaces and places and outdoor cook-off type activities that will excite, delight and educate all.
The festival was originally designed to bring Cape wines into Johannesburg’s largest township, Soweto, which is known for its trendsetting values and people, to expose this magnificent movement to the country’s oldest unique wine etiquettes and cultures.

Says the Honourable Minister of Tourism, Derek Hanekom, following his visit to last festival, “This festival epitomises innovation and transcends stereotypes. It’s about great South African food, wine and travel, brought alive in Soweto. This festival has become a must-do event on the tourism calendar in Johannesburg. ”

Come and experience the best wines the Cape has to offer; travel retailers with a choice of holidays and weekends away, a selection of gastronomies to suit all varieties and tastes from top-shelf restaurants, local bistros and food vendors, music from Soweto’s famous set, and more.
The new festival open times are:
Friday, 3 March – 6pm to 10pm
Saturday, 4 March – 12pm to 10pm
Sunday, 5 March – 12pm to 6pm
