Now anyone that knows me knows that I’m no wine aficionado.  But what I am a fan of is a great event with beautiful people, delicious food, and dope music!  And that’s exactly what the Soweto Wine Festival was.

First off, the event was HUGE!  It was wall-to-wall people and beautiful booths to showcase the wine brands and various tourism organizations.   I also met some very cool people too – 2 sisters who work with their sister on her wine brand and a husband and wife team who sell wine.  I love going to a grown and sexy event with a chill, sophisticated vibe.  I’m sure you don’t automatically put wine and South Africa together but South Africa, the 8th largest wine producing country in the world, is the continent’s leader in terms of notoriety and volume.  (source: http://www.heritagelink.com) Check out my post of our visit to some beautiful wineries near Cape Town, SA http://wp.me/p21RUs-9x

Second, the event was so well organized.  Now I know that may not matter to other folks but I’m a stickler for that.  I want the event to flow nicely and I also want good signage telling me where to go and where to park especially when there are a ton of people at an event.  And this festival definitely passed the test!  Check out the slideshow below for a few pictures of this chic event!
