Boost for wine industry transformation

Sep 19 2012 07:26

Cape Town - Nedbank has invested more than R1.3m over the past six years to transform the wine industry and has almost trebled its annual contribution for 2012 to enable more aspirant winemakers to join the Cape Winemakers Guild Protégé Programme.

Nedbank's R684 000 investment to the Cape Winemakers Guild Development Trust this year will boost the Guild’s Protégé Programme which currently supports six young qualified winemakers completing their 3-year internships under the mentorship of some of the country’s finest winemakers.

“To create a flourishing wine industry, we need a corporate investment to make things happen. And through the support of the Nedbank Foundation we are able to implement our Protégé Programme by giving these winemakers the ability to one day plough back their knowledge and expertise and thereby help to create a sustainable wine industry,” said Louis Strydom, Chairperson of the Cape Winemakers Guild.

The Cape Winemakers Guild Protégé Programme, a first for the wine industry, was launched in 2006 with the goal of bringing about transformation by cultivating, nurturing and empowering promising individuals to become winemakers of excellence.
