RMB WineX virtual wine show

Since 2000 South Africa’s favourite wine show has always been about sampling the country’s finest wines, engaging with the most talented producers and discovering the wonderful stories behind the labels.

But covid-19 has made it impossible for the show to take place like it normally does at the Sandton Convention Centre. But since you cannot come to RMB WineX, the show will come to you.

Gather your friends and family for WINE IN YOUR OWN TIME. You will be able to connect via this site to a three-minute clip, succinct but timeless, presented by each producer and designed to add a personal touch to your home tasting experience.

To visit explore the wine list and buy the wines in the comfort of your own home visit RMB WINEX 2020 online.
