Winex Select 2012 at the CTICC

Winex Select opened in Cape Town at the CTICC on Thursday. Because of other commitments, we were only able to visit on Friday. There was a good number of wine enthusiasts at the show, but not enough to make it unpleasantly crowded.
We tasted a few old favourites and some new discoveries and caught up with old friends like Inge and Paul de Wet of Zandvliet
Tamo von Arnim and a colleague from the Haute Cabriere tasting room
We found Michael Fridjhon in discussion with Johann Laubser of Delaire Graff
Winex was wonderful, but the CTICC needs to smarten up their catering, as we and many others have said before
