Elite tastings of Desiderius Pongrácz at Soweto Wine Festival

Thursday, 5 September to Saturday, 7 September, University of Johannesburg’s Soweto Campus

Seize the moment and visit Pongrácz at the Soweto Wine Festival from 5 to 7 September at the University of Johannesburg’s Soweto Campus, to savour South Africa’s leading Méthode Cap Classique range, including the singularly noble Pongrácz flagship, Desiderius Pongrácz 2008.

Exclusive tastings of this stunning Cap Classique with its white-golden hue and signature fluted bottle will be offered throughout the festival, so make a note to get your taste of this award winning prestige cuvée.

The entire Pongrácz range will be available for taste and purchase during the event. The stylish Pongrácz Brut with its wonderful foaming mousse and persistent bead will not disappoint, while the chic, enchantingly dry Pongrácz Rosé is sure to be the highlight of your visit.

Inspired by Desiderius Pongrácz, a Hungarian nobleman who revolutionised viticulture in the Cape, the elegant Pongráczrange is made predominantly of Pinot noir and Chardonnay, the grape varieties Desiderius Pongrácz helped to establish in the Cape Winelands.

Enjoy a flute of this fine Cap Classique range for a luxurious, unforgettable indulgence at the Soweto Wine Festival. The festival times are Thursday, 5 September and Friday, 6 September from 18h00 to 22h00, and Saturday, 7 September from 17h00 to 21h00. Tickets are available from at R300 (three day access) or R120 (one day ticket). Visit for the full programme.
