Stanbic Wine Festival slated for Friday

Stanbic Bank will hold its annual Wine Festival at the Gaborone International Conference Centre (GICC) this coming Friday. The Festival has been in existence for well over three years and it is co-sponsored by Distell Botswana, The Grand Palm, Mmegi newspaper as well as Gabz fm.

The best wine makers and delectable cocktail food makers are scheduled to congregate at the majestic GICC to bring to the people a taste fiesta that promises the best in both wine and dine!

The event is expected to attract a crowd of both genuine wine lovers and of course inquisitive first timers. Tickets are currently on sale at P350 per person.

When the event starts off at 18:00 hours, Stanbic bank expects that it will attract no less than 400 people.

“We are thrilled about the third installment of the Stanbic Bank Wine Festival. It has become one of the most pleasant platforms for us to catch up with the Bank’s clients, prospective customers and various stakeholders, all the while learning something new,” said Head of Marketing for Stanbic Bank, Duduetsang Chappell Molloy.

Look, smell and taste, according to those in the know, are the core steps involved in a wine tasting session. First you take a gander at the wine itself and consider its colour. Next you take in its bouquet of aromas, then you elevate to the first taste.

There is also a school of thought that says certain kinds of wines are best when taken in accompaniment of particular foods.

One social characteristic that most people agree upon is that few social affairs take place without the inclusion of some lovely wine as the glue to keep interactions going and conversation flowing.
