The FNB Limpopo Wine Show, now in its eighth year running, takes place in Polokwane on 24 and 25 July 2014 followed by the second FNB Free State Wine Show in Bloemfontein on 31 July and 1 August. Directed by wine authority Michael Fridjhon and organised by Johannesburg-based OutSorceress Marketing, the wine show supports the White River chapter of Rotary International as a contribution to the local community. Proceeds to Rotary International, raised through ticket sales and wine donations via all three regional wine shows, exceeded R100 000 in 2013.
