Wine contests come and go, but the Veritas Awards continue to carry significant weight both with consumers and wine buyers, widely regarded as authoritative, both here and abroad.
The annual public tastings of the 2011 Veritas winners take place this month and next, and wine lovers are advised to book early, because numbers will be limited to avoid crowding.
The Cape Town tasting takes place at the VOC room of the Southern Sun Cape Sun hotel in Strand street on Tuesday, October 18 from 5-8pm. Tickets cost R130. Book at Computicket outlets or online at http://www.computicket.com/
Readers in Knysna and Port Elizabeth will find details of their tastings online at www.veritas.co.za – Weekend Argus
