FTW Pick: Wine producers battle to stay afloat
5 Mar 2019 - by Liesl Venter
South African wine producers remain under pressure with nearly 40% operating at a loss. And it’s a situation that has not been helped by the recent drought in the Western Cape, communications manager of Wines of South Africa (Wosa), Maryna Calow, told the Exporters’ Club Western Cape recently.
She said in the past 10 years South Africa had lost 10 000 ha of vines and 1000 producers due to the lack of sustainability of wine making.
