May this month fills with South African wine, sunshine and hope
For the past few years, April was the much-anticipated South African wine month-long campaign. This year is the seventh running and the campaign will run for two months until end of May. We also decided to change the name from Discover South Africa to SPECTACULAR South Africa. After all, ’spectacular’ is the word every visitor to South Africa utters, no matter how many times they have been to the country. South African wine is as spectacular as its landscape.
The past few months have been tough on everyone. Although we are still not clear of the 🦠 yet, hopefully the brighter weather now will improve our mood and the situation. Today is South Africa Freedom Day, let’s pump up our positive energy, stay healthy and hopeful, enjoy the spring ☀️ with a 😊 on our face, and raise a glass or two of 🇿🇦 🍷! 
Scroll down for SPECTACULAR South Africa participating outlets and their fantastic offers! 
South African wine is getting recognition for their quality and diversity. Check out these exciting newcomers: Simonsig from Golden Gate Wine, Craven and Testalonga from La Cabane, BLANKbottle from Madison Wine, Leeu Passant and Mullineux from Sarment, Crystallum and Lismore from Summergate Fine Wines, DeMorgenzon from Watson’s Wine, Gabriëlskloof from Wine Rhetorica, Beeslaar and David & Nadia from wine’n’things.
