Dog lovers! Enter #SADogsofWine 2022 and WIN!

by | Jul 1, 2022 | Article, Wineland

Our 2022 #SADogsofWine social media competition kicks off on 1 July 2022.

We love dogs. Period. Wherever wine is made, you’re likely to find a loyal canine snoozing in the cellar, roaming the vineyards or loyally trailing their winemaker about in their daily duties. Maybe it’s their keen sense of smell, unconditional love and companionship, or even their joyous, exuberant view of life, we don’t know. But what we do know is that dogs form an integral part of any winery or estate in the Cape Winelands.


Our 2022 #SADogsofWine photo competition gives you the opportunity to show off your winery or winemaker’s most beloved cellar pooch, and get rewarded for it!

This year, our first place winner receives a R3 000 cash prize sponsored by Cork Supply and a bottle of Kaapse Vonkel sponsored by Simonsig Our second place winner will receive R1 500 and our third prize winner will receive a R500 cash prize.


Cork supply: For four decades Cork Supply has been leader in the fields of Investigation, Development and Innovation. Every day the teams are driven to develop new ways of improving upon our products and services, to guarantee the satisfaction of our customers. For more info, go to

Simonsig Wine Estate: Simonsig Wine Estate is synonymous with the history of the South African wine industry, the Stellenbosch wine region, and the Malan family name. These elements are intertwined in this family-owned farm, where the late Frans Malan produced the first bottle of our much-loved Kaapse Vonkel, South Africaʼs first Méthode Cap Classique made in the classic bottle-fermented style.
He is also honoured for co-founding the thriving Stellenbosch Wine Route, a first in its time. Today, his legacy lives on through his sons, Francois and Johan, and grandchildren Francois-Jacques, Christelle and Michael, the 2nd and 3rd Malan generations at Simonsig Wine Estate.
