Wines of South Africa has renamed its biennial 'Mega Tasting' event, which will now be known as 'Cape Wine Europe'.

The change, announced today (16 May), will “align” the trade event, held in London, more closely with 'Cape Wine', the biennial exhibition for South Africa's wine producers, held in Cape Town.

“Cape Wine in South Africa is the Southern Hemisphere's most successful professional wine show and has become a highlight on the international calendar amongst both the trade and media internationally,” said WoSA's CEO, Su Birch. “The Mega Tasting is also a ‘must attend’ event in Europe and it, therefore, makes complete sense to align The Mega Tasting with Cape Wine and re-name the event Cape Wine Europe.”

This year, 'Cape Wine Europe' will be held on 11 and 12 October at Earl's Court.
