The Black Cellar Club (BLACC) has chosen the SA’s first township, Langa, as the setting for its debut premium wine and spirits festival BLACC Fest X Langa. The event will be held at the Guga s’Thebe Arts & Culture Centre.

Says Aubrey Ngcungama, co-founder of the Black Cellar Club: “The essence of BLACC is to bring South African wines to the greater population of African people who have yet to fully embrace the wine industry, while also encouraging the wine industry to embrace this influential demographic. Through the club’s sommeliers and wine stewards, hospitality workforce and influencers, BLACC has journeyed two short years to become known in the country’s corporate boardrooms and beyond.”

BLACC Fest X Langa is a continuation of BLACC’s vision to bring SA’s finest wine and distilleries to the people, and the first event looks set to be a lively, boutique and classy affair that will pave the way for future events around the country.

The event will take place on 10 & 11 November from 11h30 to 18h00 on the Saturday and 11h30 to 17hoo on the Sunday. Tickets are available through Quicket and cost R220 per day, with no under 18’s allowed on the premises. The ticket price includes a souvenir BLACC wine glass and 10 x tasting coupons. Food on sale from Jordan’s Way of Cooking and Boulevard 82, with music from Abavuki Marimba Band, DJ Fosta and DJ Sebs.
