Sustainability 360 will be the main focus of the recyclable stands of CapeWine 2022 (5-7 October, Cape Town International Convention Centre). The South African Wine Industry is ready to welcome trade and media visitors from around the world, to taste the latest releases and meet with the winemakers.
The carbon footprint of flights will be offsetted by planting of trees, thanks to the partner Greenpop. «This year – announces WoSA, Wine of South Africa – visitors can expect to meet and taste the wines of over 400 South African wine producers under one roof. A record number of exhibitors for CapeWine, since its inception in 2002 and a sign that we are back in business».
