Welcome to SITT Spring. 

Well, what a great blend of new exhibitors joining SITT alongside those we all know so well. It’s fantastic to see the diversity on offer at this edition of SITT which is sure to be eyeopening and inspiring to all of you looking for new, exciting and on-trend bottles.

As I always say, SITT is about collaboration, ensuring the right businesses meet each other in the best possible tasting environment and at the most appropriate buying moments of the year. There are 12 new exhibitors at SITT Spring offering fresh new wines to complement long-standing companies. These include Sonvino, Swartland’s Riebeek Cellars, Lusus Wines, Ester Wines and Jascots, among other exciting new additions. To all these new companies, welcome; to all our long-standing exhibitors, thank you for your continued support; and to all our visitors, enjoy a great day of business and content.

SITT always brings you the most relevant and up-to-the-moment content. Alongside our exhibitors, this spring we have the theme of sustainability. Sustainability in winemaking is a versatile, dynamic and relevant topic that is becoming increasingly important to engage with and understand. Today is the perfect opportunity to engage, learn more and taste some exceptional wines. Each exhibitor is highlighting these wines on their table – look out for the pink bottle tags!
