12 Bottle Save SA Wine case
25% off to #SaveSAwine
On Sunday 28th June, the South African Government announced a 4th ban on domestic alcohol sales since Covid began.
Needless to say, this was not music to the ears of an already beleaguered SA wine industry – an industry impacting 290 000 employees through the value chain.
While there has been no financial support offered by the Government, we can at least do our bit by serving up some of the Cape’s finest, predominantly from our smaller producers, at a particularly juicy price.
