VATS Wine Club was founded in 1983, when a few friends met in a local Johannesburg restaurant to taste and discuss wine. Now, over thirty years later, VATS has grown into an institution. Our membership is still growing, with members from all walks of life and from every stage of the experience from the novice to the master. The common thread that ties us together is a passion for wine. VATS has become well respected within the industry, and attracts prominent speakers from every facet of the trade to address us on all aspects of viniculture and viticulture.
