by | Oct 22, 2020 | News

Wines of South Africa has launched a series of webinars entitled the Insider Sessions, to connect with trade and media around the world on key issues facing the industry in 2020. The sessions will run at 10.00 GMT on 10th, 11th and 12th November 2020 and can be accessed, free, via Zoom. Each session will be chaired by a high-profile industry expert and will feature leading South African wine producers on the discussion panel.

The Insider Sessions kick off on 10th November asking the question How To Future-Proof?, a discussion about the future of the South African wine industry, facing enormous challenges but making the best wines in its history. On the 11th November the discussion will turn to Does Site Matter?, an exploration of the diverse and varied terroir in South Africa and how producers are championing the nuances of particular sites and vineyards. Closing the sessions on 12th November will be a focus on sustainability, asking What Next for Sustainability?. South Africa is a world-leader in sustainable wine production and 2020 saw the 10-year anniversary of the Sustainability Seal. The panel will discuss the key issues going forward for this vital element of wine production in South Africa.

Commenting on the launch, Siobhan Thompson, CEO of Wines of South Africa, said: “The virtual world is the reality for 2020 and we are delighted to be able to bring together three fantastic panels to discuss these important topics and engage with trade and media in our export markets, at a time when we can’t meet in person. The Insider Sessions will offer great insight into the South African wine industry and shine a light on what the future holds for our producers. These will be valuable sessions for anyone involved in or interested in South African wines. Finally, we would like to thank our partners, Wesgro, for supporting these events.”
