Covid-19 & Tastings

20 June 2021


Due too the rising rate of Covid-19 infections the committee of the VATS Wine Club have made the very difficult decision to postpone all future tastings until there are signs that the pandemic, or at least 'the SA Third Wave', reduces making social gatherings not so dangerous.

Therefore, there will be no tasting schedule published until the rates of infection are on the decline. We will keep everyone on the mail list informed as to when we can restart tastings.

Please will everyone take great care with social gatherings, even with your own families and friends until this horrendous spike in infections declines.

Who We Are
Red Wine Tasting

VATS Wine Club was founded in 1983, when a few friends met in a local Johannesburg restaurant to taste and discuss wine. Now, thirty-five years later, VATS has grown into an a very well known and respected institution.

Our membership is still growing, with members from all walks of life and from every stage of experience - from the novice to the master.

The common thread that ties us together is a passion for wine. VATS has become well respected within the industry and attracts prominent speakers from every facet of the trade to address us on all aspects of viniculture and viticulture.
