SA Wine Lockdown

SAWineLockdown Mar 27, 2020

With the Novel Coronavirus raging around the world, South Africa has declared a national lockdown from 27 March 2020 that will last for 21 days ending on 17 April. During this time no alcohol will be sold. In an effort to support the local wine industry during the lockdown, a group of wine lovers came up with a way to keep the local wines and wineries top of mind of consumers, so that when the lockdown is over, people can support these wine brands with sales.

Thank you to The Wine Girl Cape Town, Through My Wine Glass, The Witty Wine Woman and Just Janet!

Please join me in joining them to celebrate and remember our local wine brands!
