About Us

A celebration of Good Food, Wine & Art.


Our founder and Managing Director, Tshepang, created festival it is wine not only because she was passionate about wine, but because she wanted to share that passion to others in a fun and engaging way.

After years of attending wine tastings, Tshepang discovered that there was a gap in the market for wine tasting events that appealed to her generation, were stylish, educated the audience and remained exciting throughout. Ekurhuleni wine festival it was born to make wine tasting an experience not just an event.

We are a Johannesburg based company but we are a completely mobile tasting company and create experiences with end to end event planning. We can host tastings at a venue of your choice or any venue recommended by us. We host corporate events and private parties for small and large groups. Every tasting is different.

In 2016 Tshepang created a popular annual wine festival in her beautiful city Ekurhuleni, with superb wines on tasting and amazing masterclasses featuring the world’s most interesting wines. Since then, she has taken the Festivals to another level, with phenomenal success.

Each Festival is a celebration of Arts and Wine with a real sense of community. Tickets include unlimited tastings from hundreds of high quality wines being poured by top winemakers, retailers and importers. There’s also a full programme of master classes at each event.

What to expect

Festival is serious about wine, but never, ever stuffy. You’ll discover great new wines, learn the stories behind them, and hone your own palate through this amazing opportunity to compare and contrast so many quality wines.

Our policy is to also keep our masterclass ticket prices very affordable: we want as many people as possible to enjoy these unmissable sessions – not only to taste some of the world’s greatest wines, but to learn from our expert tutors.
