Chardonnay and pinotage fathers on alcohol sales ban


While restaurants nationwide were blockings roads outside their premises by dragging tables and chairs into the streets, South Africa’s foremost wine fathers, Danie de Wet and Beyers Truter, have also spoken out against the covid-19 alcohol sales ban.

Although they fully acknowledge the need of a lockdown to curb the rapid spread of the coronavirus, the internationally respected winemakers have rubbished the decision by government to forbid alcohol sales. Both Truter and De Wet, respectively the owners of Beyerskloof and De Wetshof in the Western Cape, believe that the shutdown of the alcohol industry was uncalled for. They speak to Food For Mzansi editor Dawn Noemdoe.
