Amorim Gets World Talking at Cape Wine

Amorim Gets World Talking at Cape Wine

With exhibition space for South Africa’s triennial wine trade showcase completely sold out, CapeWine 2018 is set to yet again raise the bar as South African wine producers ready themselves for the international trade and media gaze when Wines of South Africa (WoSA) welcomes them from 12 – 14 September. And once again, Amorim will be present at this illustrious event as one of the sponsors.

This year’s theme, ‘\Hannuwa’, encapsulates the philosophy of the South African wine industry as a pledge to farming sustainably and be a custodian of the land and preserve it for future generations. By nurturing a culture of respect among the people who work with us on our farms and in our cellars, we endeavour to promote an environment of dignity, equality and up-liftment for all whilst protecting the unique and valuable biodiversity of our winelands and safeguarding the rich heritage of our industry.

One of the many stimulating features on the Cape Wine programme is the Amorim Speaker’s Corner where wine industry leaders will present and discuss stimulating topics pertaining to South African wine. And we have just received the programme:
