UNCORK WITH SA WINE
- Rico Basson – SA Wine
We had the honour of hosting Rico Basson, the esteemed CEO of SA Wines, as our guest speaker. His insightful discussion illuminated the wine industry’s pivotal role in the South African economy. He shared his vision of elevating our wines as globally recognisable brands and further expanding into international markets, emphasising the collaborative effort needed from all stakeholders.
This enlightening session explored the key factors driving the wine industry’s growth and the strategic avenues for expanding our exports. Rico’s expertise highlighted the importance of unity and cooperation to achieve these goals, might we also add he accurately predicted our World Cup Rugby victory.
Adding to the event’s splendour was our venue – the stunning new space at Webber Wentzel, where we gathered for one of their first events in the newly renovated space. The atmosphere was enthusiastic as industry professionals came together to network & enjoy some wine.
Thank you to Rico Basson for his invaluable insights and all the attendees who made this event a resounding success. Let’s continue working together to raise the bar for our wine industry, making it a beacon of excellence in the global market.
