As South African winemakers endure a 4th ban on domestic alcohol sales, extended by two weeks to July 26th, exports once again stand as the industry’s only lifeline.
To help boost sales in the UK, South African wine specialist RAKQ have discounted prices across their full range by up to 30% in their new #SaveSAwine sale. The sale will run for the duration of the two-week extension and includes wines from Kanonkop, Babylonstoren, Waterford Estate, Rustenberg and many more.

“This is the 26th week without alcohol sales in South Africa – that’s half a year that the industry has had to manage without Government support since the pandemic began.” RAKQ Founder, Sebastian Rezek said. “So when buying a bottle, let’s make it South African – there are so many amazing wines to choose from.”
The wine industry is estimated to impact 290 000 employees through the full value chain, with over 80% of the Cape’s wineries registered as small or medium sized companies. In a normal year, over half of South African wine production is sold at home, leaving the industry reeling after four bans in the past 15 months.
If you want to do your bit to help protect jobs and #SaveSAwine, it’s as simple as pouring a glass of the Cape’s finest.
