Wi th Wines of South Africa on transformation in the industry
The South African wine industry has always been viewed as being predominantly white. But steps have been taken within the sector in an attempt to transform the landscape. asked Wines of SA’s market manager for Americas & Africa Matome Mbatha about this: How far has SA’s BEE winemaking industry progressed in comparison to the veteran winemakers? I think each BEE brand should look into what area of the value chain they have strength in and focus in the area to develop and grow their brand. Are there any larger winemakers forming partnerships with the smaller BEE winemakers and transferring skills?
