/ Theme: Creating a Sustainable Future

This year’s theme for CapeWine is \Hannuwa\, the 200,000 year old Khoi-San word which describes nature and people as one. The South African wine industry has come a long way in recent years to ensure the sustainability of both our land and our people as, without either one it simply wouldn’t survive. Our speakers are all experts in their field, understanding the value of the combined efforts to create not only an industry, but a world that provides for the future, ensuring that we look after our land by employing ecologically friendly practices in our vineyards and uplifting our people through employment, education and opportunities that stretch beyond the vineyards, while ensuring that the economic situation remains viable for investment and growth.
