Hosted together on the impressive South Africa Wine stand, the brands received much attention from local visitors and international media alike. International media delegates from Nigeria, Lesotho, Namibia, Zambia, America, and China flocked to the stand to learn more about these brands.

On Friday, 5 April, the brands met with Forti, owner of the highly popular Vee & Forti Wine Bar and Liquor Emporium, which boasts a selection of 1 100 wines from across the globe. He was genuinely impressed with these young change-makers and allocated shelving space for a few black-owned brands. The South Africa Wine team and black-owned brands were treated to a tour of their wine boutique, and all are excited at this new, unexpected, but most welcomed opportunity.
