The Great British Braai Off is all about encouraging people to share a love of cooking outdoors over fire with a great bottle of South African wine on the go. Over the second May Bank Holiday weekend we hope lots of our family, freinds and customers will join us in sharing their braai efforts (under sunny skies of course, fingers crossed!) with their favourite South African wine.
South Africa has been in coronavirus lockdown for nearly 2 months with some of the strictest quarantine rules in the world. Uniquely it seems, South Africa’s wine producers have been unable to sell their wines domestically or – until very recently – export them around the world.
The 2020 harvest was allowed to finish and we all know this is perhaps the most expensive time of year for winemakers – so this total ban on sales has come at a very difficult time.
Wine is the second biggest agricultural export for South Africa, contributing 49 billion rand a year and supporting nearly 300,000 jobs. It’s believed the export ban has cost producers at least a billion rand in export sales. The UK is South Africa’s biggest export market and they need our help in getting the wheels turning again as many producers are near to breaking point.
The best thing we can do is to buy and enjoy the country’s wines with a braai (barbecue) – we’d love to see pics of your braai cooking too on instagram, twitter or facebook….
