Every cork that is popped, every wine swirled and sniffed, every sip thoughtfully savoured, gives a taste of #SpectacularSouthAfrica
Wines of South Africa – WOSA – has launched a campaign on social media and online to promote South African wines. The overall theme for the campaign is “Spectacular South Africa“.
West Coast Way supports this initiative and encourages everyone to join in promoting the wine industry which is a key contributor to economic growth and employment in the Cape West Coast.
In these tough times where there is no budget to spend, WOSA believes that we can create exposure for South African wines by working together to contribute to uplifting, positive news and awareness of what we have to offer.
With wine sales now open again and exports of wine happening, the Spectacular South Africa campaign offers winemakers and wine lovers a fresh new theme each month with a virtual tasting on a specific day that we encourage you to support!
Every month’s wine theme
20 June – Drink Chenin
24 July – Rosé
28 August – Sustainability
25 September – Méthode Cap Classique (sparkling wine)
10 October – Pinotage
Ways to get involved
Make a short video (one to two minutes) showing your Spectacular South Africa experience and how you enjoy wine along with the themes between now and October.
Share the video’s with your friends on social media platforms
The aim is to create excitement, support and confidence in South Africa’s wines.
