Now in its 33rd year, the annual Mercury Wine Week will once again give wine-lovers the opportunity of tasting the widest variety of wines available at one place in KwaZulu-Natal.

As always, the country's top wine estates have booked their places at South Africa’s premier wine event and will be showcasing their popular ranges as well as some previously untasted wines. This event also offers wine buyers and sellers the chance to mingle with the public and wine connoisseurs in a relaxed setting. Members of the public will also be able to buy wines at great prices over the show period.

Mercury Wine Week is only open to over 18’s.

It takes place at Suncoast from August 24 to 26. Doors open from 17h30 to 21h00 each night. Tickets will be available through Computicket or at the special Suncoast box office and at the door. Entry includes a free, branded wine glass for tasting.
