Local Artisan Publik Wine Fair – Joburg 2019

Words: Crush

I’m sure we can all appreciate wine (to whatever extent). But some of us may get a bit lost at a wine tasting between the fancy sommelier-jargon, the leg-judging, tannin-calculating glass swirl (emitting all sorts of flavour profiles that second-guesses every thought you once had of an ester), and of course, choosing the right answer to “What hints do you get?”. It can be stressful drinking wine with self-proclaimed wine connoisseurs. Luckily Local Artisan Publik Wine Fair is all about quality wine – no stress and no self-proclaimed wine snobs.

 New Venue

Publik Wine Fair – Joburg will take place on 16 November 2019 at the Victoria Yards venue in downtown Johannesburg. With its large industrial warehouse the venue brings new capacity to allow for even more guests, ensuring a festive afternoon to taste the latest releases from some of the best artisan wine producers in South Africa.
