Is it just us, or are our #JoburgLovesWine parties getting more and more epic with every round?
On Friday 31 August, we hit Eyethu Lifestyle Centre in Soweto to celebrate with life- and wine-lovers from all over Joburg. It was really amazing to see so many beloved old friends and meet a whole bunch of new ones.

Seven of our wine partners joined us for the evening, offering limitless tastings of their beautiful products. We were so proud to help Alto, Avontuur Estate, De Grendel, Diemersdal, La Motte, Lourensford and Plaisir de Merle show off their superb wines to our very special Joburg crowd.
These wines, of course, paired perfectly with the array of flame-grilled platters, a cheese table loaded with cheese, fruit and crackers, and a warm buffet-style Shisa Nyama.
Between sipping and snacking away, also were also treated to some seriously foot-tapping, dope beats by the oh-so fabulous DJ ROXCizzle.

One of our absolute favourite things about partying it up in Joburg, is how everyone always shows up looking stylish to the nines. This time round, our dress code for the evening was ‘Weekend’ and our wine-lovers certainly didn’t disappoint.
From faux fur and animal print to sheer blouses and flowy skirts; dapper wax print bomber jackets and colourful head wraps to leather jackets and collared shirts, each outfit was something gorgeous to behold!

We’ve loaded a whole album of photos from the evening onto Facebook, so go take a peek for yourself. Also, if you spot a familiar face in any of the pics, please feel free to tag away and share. Please do also tag Joburg Wine Club in the photos you share – we’d love to see what you post!
