A wine experience in Johannesburg??

Yep. It may seem counter-intuitive, given that Johannesburg doesn’t have much in the way of vineyards. But what Joburg doesn’t have in vineyards, it has in drinking power, and wine trends are made in Johannesburg.

And even without vineyards, Joburg does have winemakers. There are plenty of garagiste winemakers, and, most notably, the Gerakaris Family Winery, in Craighall, Joburg’s only formal winery. We’ve seen in Cape Town how black wine makers and wine brand owners, not owning vineyards or having hundreds of years of family wine heritage, have been turning the sector totally upside down. And Johannesburg’s wine scene is the extension of that idea. It’s trend-setting.

Our Johannesburg Wine Safari, a half-day tour, features a pairing of a selection of wines much loved by Soweto wine clubs with Soweto traditional dishes, with a visit to Gerakaris for a tasting of their range.

A typical itinerary could look like this:

  • 14h00 collection from accommodation, introduction to the programme. Transfer to Gerakaris
  • 14h20 tasting at Gerakaris
  • 16h00 wine and traditional food pairing in Soweto
  • 17h20 transfer to hotel
  • 18h00 drop off back at hotel
