Hip, urban wine adventure right in the heart of the city

Tuning the Vine #InnerCityWineRoute is an epic midweek wine tasting adventure including some of the hippest inner city venues and showcasing delicious South African wines and talented winemakers! Every Wednesday following First Thursdays, Tuning the Vine fills the City streets with hundreds of happy wine tuners, helpful wine fairies and so much wine loving fun!

Starting time is 5.30pm and wine tastings end at 8.30pm. Venues are open till late so you can stay wherever you are and continue to have fun. Ticket sales will close at 7pm.


How to Tune the Vine

Gather your best friends and get off to an early start at one of our ticket stations (see map on our home page for ticket station locations). Show your tickets, or buy some and get your wine tuning kit –  a glass, a wristband and a map –  and off you go.

Walk, dance skip from one venue to the next – in your own time and in your own order.

Discover new places and spaces, fabulous wines and delicious food.

Venues have “food-on-the-go” options for wine tuners on the move – so top up as you work your way along the #InnerCityWineRoute to make sure that tummy is well lined all the wine tasting.

Each venue also prepares menus to pair with the wines on show. So stop along the way, buy something delicious with a glass or a bottle of your favourite wine which you can also purchase from the venue’s bar. At Weinhaus & Biergarten you can purchase wine directly from your favourite producer.

Tuning the Vine in style

If you want to learn more and need some help navigating the many wines on show, or if you are a wine fundi wanting to dive deeper into the world of wine, a sommelier tour for groups of 6 to 8 people could add some magic to your wine tuning experience. A 60-minute sommelier tour costs an extra R150 per person.


You can buy tickets at www.quicket.co.za for R200 per person. This ticket price gives you a glass, wristband and map and includes all wine tastings. Food is not included in the ticket price.

You can buy tickets at our ticket stations on the day for R220 per person.
