VATS Wine Club
Please feel free to browse all about our club our history, this and the past year's tasting schedules and all the scorings we gave the greatwines we have tasted over the great many years we have been established - in fact, in this year we will be celebrating the club's 40th year of tasting fantastic wines.
From early last year we found ourselves homeless as Bryanston Country Club found that could no longer host us and we were extremely lucky to find a new home at the Bryanston Sports Club (BSC), Payne Road, just off Main Road, Bryanston.
We have found a very happy home there and hope with the current cessation of Covid concerns will now be able to go from strength to strength with the continued help from all at the BSC and all those great owners and distributors of the wine farms - we cannot thank them enough for all their help over the last couple of very hard years.

Who We Are
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.
