Absa Capital hosts 9th annual Champagne Festival  


Absa Capital, the investment banking division of Absa Group Ltd (Absa), will be hosting the 9th annual Absa Capital Champagne Festival on Sunday, 12 September, at Summer Place, Johannesburg.

This festival, the only one of its kind in South Africa, will give attendees the opportunity to sample 30 exclusive French Champagnes, including Bollinger, Guy Charbaut, Krug, Laurent Perrier and Taittinger.

Makhosi Kunene, Chief Administrative Officer at Absa Capital said: “The Absa Capital Champagne Festival is an exclusive afternoon that provides guests with an introduction to the wines of the French Champagne region, supported by their South African importers, agents and their French principals.”

Tickets are R495 per person, which includes all Champagne tasting and canapés. A limited number of tickets are available to the public.

“Throughout the world, Champagne is the symbol of celebrations, friendliness and excellence. Yet behind this unique heritage lies a rich diversity of flavours, which are not always recognized or understood. The Absa Capital Champagne Festival will provide guests with the requisite information to the French Champagne region,” said Kunene.

The event takes place from 14h30 till 17h00 at Summer Place on Melville Road, Hyde Park, Johannesburg. For ticket bookings, please contact Gift Chanza on 011 884 0024 or
