In just seven years, Come Wine With Us™ has evolved from six people sitting around a kitchen table into a custom offering that can’t be found anywhere else.
Come Wine With Us™ expanded not only in the size of its community, but also to exploring different beverages and brands. Made with the lovers of all things food, drink and travel in mind, Come Wine With Us™ has evolved into Come Join Us®, which promises to offer bespoke experiences to anyone who never wants to do the same thing twice.
Bringing you glasses (and often bottles) of wine, along with scrumptious food pairings, entertainment and a great deal of fun, Come Wine With Us™ events have become synonymous with togetherness and an incredible night out.
Hosted in South Africa’s greatest cities – Johannesburg, Pretoria, Durban and, of course, Cape Town – you are guaranteed to enjoy the food, wine, entertainment and company.
While Come Join Us® was born through a love of wine and originally existed as Come Wine With Us™, it evolved over the years. But loving one thing does not mean having to choose it over something else, which is precisely why we decided to turn our sights to two other great favourites: whisky and cocktails.
Come Whisky With Us™ operates on the same principles as Come Wine With Us™, but you can enjoy an evening of whisky and cocktails instead. Exceptional food pairings and great company are the order of the day at these events and a sophisticated evening is guaranteed.
While some might be under the impression that any old road trip or holiday constitutes as “travel”, we have a different point of view. Travel is fueled by desire: the desire to explore, enjoy new experiences, collect memories and live through a journey – short or long – that cannot be recreated.
For many travellers, our choices are dictated by the people we’ll meet along the way, the food and drinks we’ll enjoy under foreign stars or in local lands, and the unique adventures we won’t soon find anywhere else.
Through Come Join Us®, beverage brands of any variety will be partnered with the best local restaurants within Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban and Pretoria in order to elevate their brand association and presence. In addition to this, brands who sign up for Come Wine With Us™ or Come Whisky With Us™ events can enjoy the additional opportunity to make use of the Come Join Us® PR and Marketing services, which include offerings such as:
- Interactive and/or virtual experiences
- Support from bloggers and influencers
- New brand and/or variant launches
- Media parties, press releases, media invites, exposure management
- Full event reports
- Data capturing
Our founder, Sybil Doms, not only studied at Banhoek Valley’s Institute of Culinary Arts (ICA), but she also spent time learning from some of the industry’s best-known chefs. Following this, she was awarded a prestigious Sommelier Scholarship at Waddesdon Manor in the UK, which she completed before returning to South Africa. Before returning to her roots of food, travel and wine, Sybil enjoyed experience as a freelance fashion, décor and food stylist.
