Dear Pick n Pay Wine Supplier,

You are cordially invited to participate in the Pick n Pay Wine & Food Festival Durban, scheduled to take place on Saturday, 27 July 2024.

The Festival is a wine, food and lifestyle event that will promote the wines from across the Cape Winelands to social & discerning wine consumers. The goal is to create a platform to promote wine farms, and to promote Pick n Pay as a preferred wine and food destination to consumers.

Other important event info:

In the interest of promoting responsible drinking and to honour the various price points of the wines available, a revised token system is in place. While these tokens have no value (and cannot be exchanged for cash), guests will “pay” between one and four tokens per per tasting, based on the price point of the wine.

  • 1 x token : wine up to R200
  • 2 x tokens : wine valued R201 – R400
  • 4 x tokens : wine valued above R400

The token system remains in place to control single tastings (guests cannot exchange multiple tokens for a full glass of wine, for instance) and promote responsible drinking.

  • Tasting ends at 4pm to encourage ONLY wine sales from the central wine bar until 5pm.
  • Note that wine sales are for on-site consumption only.
  • There will be a drive for online sales via PnP asap! for post-event delivery.
