Cape Vintner Classification: New association to promote South Africa’s top wines

A new association in South Africa was officially launched during the London Wine Fair in May. The name is Cape Vintner Classification. The purpose of the association is to promote high-quality wines and estates in the Cape Wine lands. In short, what they want to do is to show the world that South Africa can produce wines of high class and not just decent everyday wines.

Cape Vintner Classification has set up strict rules for membership. In addition to having wines of a certain quality level, the estates have to work sustainably and ethically correct. Only estates that make wines from their own grapes can be granted membership although some exceptions are made. Read more here about Cape Vintner Classification and the member estates.
