Lots of people have asked how they can help in the wake of this new liquor ban, since the 28th of December 2020.

Firstly, you can help us spread the word by sharing this post with as many people as you can. Let’s raise our voices, highlight the damage being done by the ban to our industry and its transformation programs, and stand together in solidarity.

Secondly, you can encourage family and friends overseas to buy South African wines.
