Discover South Africa

2015-12-09

April is a special month for us as we commemorate the first democratic non-racial elections that were held on April 27th 1994. It was then, close to 25 years ago, that the modern South African wine industry was born. Since South Africa’s return to international trade, our wines have taken a quantum leap forward. Vineyards have been replanted, hundreds of small wineries have opened and exports have grown from 50 million litres in 1994 to around 430 million litres last year. This growth has been driven by an exponential increase in quality, with each new year delivering exciting new wineries, more innovative young winemakers, and even better wines. 

We celebrate through a month-long, market wide campaign and invite you to discover the quality and diversity of South Africa and its wines throughout the month of April. Visit our participating outlets: restaurants, bars, retailers and wine clubs for some fantastic offers!

The feature of the month is the annual  ‘Discover South Africa’ walk-round wine tasting. Over 150 wines were available for tasting and purchase. South Africans snacks and other activities were also be available. Watch this space for details of next year’s activities.
