The 8th annual Chardonnay and Pinot Noir Festival in Johannesburg is back on 30 May 2019.

Explore the wonderful, complex and delicious world of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir at South Africa’s only wine event dedicated to these two noble varietals which grow in popularity year-on-year.

The Chardonnay and Pinot Noir Festival – which takes place at The Crystal Room at the Killarney Country Club on Thursday, May 30, from 18h00 – includes in its impressive line-up more than 80 high-end, award-winning Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays, many that are not shown at other festivals because they are often too expensive and with too small a production.

Only a limited number of tickets are available and cost R250 per person. The price includes a tasting glass as well as light snacks chosen to complement the styles of wine being sampled. In addition to tastings, the wines will also be on sale on the night, at less than retail prices. Some are no longer available on the general marketplace.

Participation by estates is by invitation only with organiser, Corlien Morris of Wine Menu, choosing what wines will be available for tasting to ensure that only the best is shown at the festival which has been sold-out since it first started in Gauteng eight years ago.

Says Morris: “This is a targeted wine experience that focuses on the flavours and nuances of these two famous Burgundian varietals. We are delighted to be showcasing the best examples that South Africa produces. These are serious show-stopping wines.”

Only 300 tickets will be made available for the 2019 Chardonnay & Pinot Noir Festival so booking is essential.  Tickets can be purchased via Webtickets or from Wine Menu in Kramerville.
