Getting the world to taste the sunshine in our wines #tastesunshine

28 September 2018  -  Judy Brower -

With South African Wines taking the world by storm, it is the perfect time for the annual #tastesunshine event, when we celebrate our Heritage Day and create more opportunities to share the sunshine in our wine.

South Africa celebrates Heritage Day on 24th Sept, and heritage of course means different things to different people.

Wine has been made in South Africa since 1659, and it is definitely part of our heritage. What easier way to celebrate this than lighting the fire, having a braai (aka #braaiday) and sharing the sunshine in our wine?

This is the 2nd year of's #tastesunshine campaign, and slowly but surely it is gaining tracking and is becoming a welcome addition to the wine calendar every September. 

We had South African wines enjoyed all over the world, from the Cayonlands National Park in Utah, USA, to Elsenburg students travelling in Portugal, to London, UK, to Switzerland and of course all over South Africa.  Many wineries had events on Heritage Day and shared their pics - see the photo album in LINKS and HERE

Plenty of wine lovers enjoyed the day and shared their #tastesunshine pics with us:


We reached 226 567 people from all over the world on Social Media this year and shared our sunshine with them.
