The South African wine industry has come a long way since 1994. Inclusivity, upliftment and growth of our industry and its people are at the forefront. While there is still much to be done, we should also recognise the many entities that consistently aid the wellbeing and positive growth of the 291 000 people who are employed in the industry.
Wines of South Africa recently shared the short documentary, ‘Creating the Blend’, which showcases a few of the phenomenal programmes and efforts that are active today. Programmes that enrich and add value on a range of levels to wine industry workers, including land ownership, education, health care, training and business opportunities.
