Whisky and Wine lovers in Joburg are spoilt for choice.


In Johannesburg, two festivals are taking place, the Whisky Live Festival, from this Wednesday to Friday at the Sandton Convention Centre, and next week, on Thursday and Friday, The Wade Bales Wine and Malt Whisky Affair at Montecasino.

Ticket prices are the same, R 190.00, which at Whisky Live entitles you to ten coupons (between 2 and 6 whiskies) and at Wade Bales entitles you to unlimited wine and whisky tastings and a variety of breads, cheeses and snacks.

Details of both festivals are on the websites.

I’ll be at both festivals and look forward to sharing a dram with you.



    1. True – and at WLF there is a R10 food coupon and a discount at Picardi. Plus – a bottle of water – much needed with whisky. WLF is the biggest in the world and has a greater variety of whiskies than Wade Bales, but there is something for everyone at both. It should be good to see both events from behind the stands.
