Sip, Swirl and Jive At a New Cape Town Festival

The Ekasi Wine Tasting and Music Festival is coming out swinging for its inaugural event, and the organisers are giving you an easy chance to win tickets as well

Wine and music are often brought together in subtle ways. Whether at a restaurant with live music, or a classy jazz bar. But they’ve never been put in the spotlight together as they will be for the Ekasi Wine Tasting and Music Festival.

The brainchild of events company More2xplore, they’re creating a unique experience on 27 January 2019 by mixing the sophistication of a wine tasting with the vibrancy of a music festival in Langa at the Guga Stheba Arts and Culture Centre.

The Ekasi Wine Tasting and Music Festival wants you to experience the taste of 10 top-class wine brands such as Pongracz, Nederburg, Alto Rouge, Plasier De Merle, 4th Street, Drostdy-Hof & JC Le Roux.
To do this they’ll give you a booklet of tasting tokens for each wine brand and a wine glass to taste from.

The organisers are bringing in some great young DJs to create a vibe for the event. These acts include local hip-hop DJ Big Wande, soulful house DJ Mphoza Fantastik, deep house DJ Ms Eve and club DJ Portia Luma, among others.


R150 gets you a ticket, which you can book here.
You can also win tickets by buying one of the participating wine brands and sending your proof of purchase to
